A comprehensive and standardized system to report lipid structures analyzed by mass spectrometry is essentialfor the communication and storage of lipidomics data. Herein, an update on both the LIPID MAPSclassification system and shorthand notation of lipid structures is presented for lipid categories Fatty Acyls(FA), Glycerolipids (GL), Glycerophospholipids (GP), Sphingolipids (SP), and Sterols (ST). With its majorchanges, i.e. annotation of ring double bond equivalents and number of oxygens, the updated shorthandnotation facilitates reporting of newly delineated oxygenated lipid species as well. For standardized reportingin lipidomics, the hierarchical architecture of shorthand notation reflects the diverse structural resolutionpowers provided by mass spectrometric assays. Moreover, shorthand notation is expanded beyond mammalianphyla to lipids from plant and yeast phyla. Finally, annotation of atoms is included for the use of stableisotope-labelled compounds in metabolic labelling experiments or as internal standards.
