The research reported in an article previously published in this journal is pursued here further on. A staircase profile of the graphical representation of the absolute value of the expression for Bohm-type diffusion in two dimensions is analyzed allowing the suggestion that its shape could be related to the well-known structure of levels of the quantized square of the guiding center radius vector and that this structure could be responsible for the appearance of the successive steps in such a profile. When these considerations are taken into account, the expression for Bohm-type diffusion in two dimensions is normalized according to the formula for the quantized square of the guiding center radius vector and a diffusion coefficient whose value is 4/π times the Bohm diffusion coefficient is obtained for large values of the independent variable.
