  I am using parnor function of lmomco package. I believe it provides mean and std. dev for the set of data. But the std. dev provided does not match with the actual std. dev of the data which is 247.9193 (using sd function). Am I missing something here?    

  > lmr <- lmom.ub(c(123,34,4,654,37,78))
> parnor(lmr)

[1] "nor"
[1] 155.0000 210.2130
  > sd(c(123,34,4,654,37,78))
[1] 247.9193
> mean(c(123,34,4,654,37,78))

[1] 155
