We have identified an error in one of the matrix elements used in the Kane 4-band model in calculating the spectral dependence of the 3PA in ZnSe [1], where a cosine was erroneously replaced by a sine in the ${\rm c}\;\alpha - {\rm c}\;\alpha $ momentum matrix element [2]. That error quantitatively changes the spectral dependence. The corrected dependence is shown in the revised Figs. 1 and 2 from that publication. This correction does not change the conclusions.
