Building on ideas of Tupan, we give an elementary proof of a result of Moeglin, Vignéras and Waldspurger on the existence of automorphisms of many p-adic classical groups that take each irreducible smooth representation to its dual. Our proof also applies to the corresponding similitude groups. It does not apply in even residual characteristic.
Keywords: Classical and similitude groups, involution, dual representation, Cayley maps.
