[en] Theoretical and observational evidences for a two-fold classification of short bursts have been recently obtained: (1) short gamma-ray flashes (S-GRFs), with isotropic energy erg and no black hole (BH) formation, and (2) authentic short gamma-ray bursts (S-GRBs), with isotropic energy erg showing evidence of BH formation in the binary neutron star merging process. The signature for BH formation is the onset of high-energy (0.1–100 GeV) emission, coeval to the prompt emission, in all S-GRBs. No GeV emission is expected nor observed in S-GRFs. In this paper, we present two S-GRBs, GRB 081024B and GRB 140402A, in addition to the already identified S-GRBs, GRB 090227B, GRB 090510, and GRB 140619B. We also return to the absence of GeV emission in the S-GRB 090227B, at an angle of from the Fermi-LAT boresight. All of the correctly identified S-GRBs correlate with high-energy emission, implying no significant presence of beaming in GeV emission. The existence of a common power-law behavior in the GeV luminosities, following the BH formation, when measured in the source rest frame, points to a commonality in the mass and spin of the newly formed BHs in all S-GRBs.
