Ramdohrite is possibly a variety of fizélyite.
Schirmerite (type I) with the composition Ag4PbBi4S9 (originally assigned to schirmerite), is possibly identical to the redefined schapbachite. Schirmerite from the type locality (type II) is a disordered intergrowth of different slabs with a composition between those of gustavite and (Ag,Bi)-rich heyrovskýite.
"Bursaite" (discredited 2006), is an Ag-poor lillianite.
"Nakaséite" (discredited), is an oversubstituted, Cu-rich variety of andorite VI.

* new, not in Nickel & Nichols (2009), preliminary grouping

in bold: grandfathered, IMA accepted, renamed and redefined (with IMA approval) minerals,
in normal letters: minerals published without IMA approval, questionable minerals, polytypes

G = Grandfathered minerals: original description preceded the establishment of the CNMNC in 1959, and generally regarded as a valid species
A or IMA No. = Minerals approved by the CNMNC
Rd = Redefinition of the mineral approved by the CNMNC
Rn = Renamed with approval by the CNMNC
GROUP = a name used to designate a group of species
N = Mineral published without approval of the CNMNC
Q = Questionable mineral
H = Hypothetical mineral (synthetic, anthropogenic, etc.)
D = Discredited by the CNMNC
Poly = Polytype
