Considering two assumptions on the molecular state, i.e. the S-wave Λ̄–K- and S-wave Σ̄0–K- molecular states, we study the possible decays of N̄X(1625) that include N̄X(1625)→K-Λ̄,π0p̄,ηp̄,π-n̄. Our results indicate that (1) if N̄X(1625) is the Λ̄–K- molecular state, K-Λ̄ is the main decay mode of N̄X(1625), and the branching ratios of the rest decay modes are tiny; (2) if N̄X(1625) is the Σ̄0–K- molecular state, the branching ratio of N̄X(1625)→K-Λ̄ is one or two orders smaller than that of N̄X(1625)→π0p̄,ηp̄,π-n̄. Thus the search for N̄X(1625)→π0p̄,ηp̄,π-n̄ will be helpful to shed light on the nature of N̄X(1625).
