1988A&A...199..217V: Updates the 1st ref. 3 stars are removed (Nos 72, 99, 122), 2 stars are inserted in RA (No. 30a inserted between No. 30 and No. 31, and No. 48a between 48 and 49)

Jan 2014: the online Galactic Wolf Rayet Catalogue - V1.9, 585 WR stars - is available at: http://pacrowther.staff.shef.ac.uk/WRcat/index.php

Jan. 2014: Revised ID scheme
(cf. http://pacrowther.staff.shef.ac.uk/WRcat/nomenclature.php)
All WR identifications up to 7th Catalogue/Annex remain unchanged (format NNNaa).
All subsequent discoveries are switched to numerical identification (format NNN-NN), sorted by year/month of discovery, in RA order if multiple discoveries arise from a single source.
Multiple WR stars identified within a single source are indicated with CAPITAL letters (format NNNA). Ref:=1981SSRv...28..227V byVAN DER HUCHT K.A. , CONTI P.S., LUNDSTROM I., STENHOLM B. Space Sci.
