The list is unfortunately incorrect. The correct one is here:

Two mistakes:  
Cmilyte 2528 
http://ratings.fide.com/top_files.phtml?id=12801259 
 
Skripchenko 2501

@Przemek Jahr Thanks, now Cmilyte has 2528, not 2527 in the table. I doubt it is a sufficient reason to call the whole list incorrect. :)  
@Eric That case is ambiguous. I am perfectly aware that her FIDE profile shows ratings below 2500 (http://ratings.fide.com/id.phtml?event=13900145), although one of the rating lists gives 2501. As I was not sure which info to trust, I decided not to include Elmira.

OK Peter, I understand. But for Almira, I'm sure. I played a match against Nao Chess Club with my club Bordeaux-Echecs in april 2003. Her rating was 2501. She won against Aurйlien Crut (who was on the board near me) while I drew against Igor Nataf.
