Dear Lydia,

If you check the original reference (TCA, 75 (1989) 173-194) for these sets you will see that the larger ECPs actually place 4f electrons into the ecp. The different numbers of electrons replaced would be selected depending on valence/subconfiguration (e.g. f1 or f2) you are interested in.
