From a Faddeev calculation for the pion-(Delta rho)(N(1675)) system, performed with the Fixed Center Approximation within a Chiral Unitary framework, we show the plausible existence of three dynamically generated I (JP) = 3/2 (5/2+) baryon states below 2.3 GeV whereas only two resonances, Delta(5/2+) (1905) (∗∗∗∗) and Delta(5/2+) (2000) (∗∗), are cataloged in the Particle Data Book Review[1]. However, a careful look at Delta(2000)(5/2+) (∗∗), shows that its nominal mass is in fact estimated from the masses (1724±61), (1752±32) and (2200±125) respectively extracted from three independent analyses of different character[2,3,4]. Moreover a recent new data analysis[5] has reported a Delta(5/2+)with a pole position at 1738 MeV. Our results give quantitative theoretical support to the existence of two distinctive resonances, Delta(5/2+)(∼1740) and Delta(5/2+)(∼2200). We propose that these two resonances should be cataloged instead of Delta(5/2+)(2000). This proposal gets further support from the possible assignment of the other calculated baryon states in the I = 1/2, 3/2 and spin-parity JP =1/2+, 3/2+ sectors to known baryonic resonances. In particular the poorly established Delta(1/2+) (1750)(∗) may be naturally interpreted as a pion-N(1/2-)(1650) bound state. [1], K. Nakamura et al., J. Phys. G 37, 075021 (2010). [2], D.M.
