We propose two adaptations of the probabilistic Itai-Rodeh algorithm for computing the size of an anonymous asynchronous ring. This Monte Carlo algorithm (inevitably) allows for wrong outcomes. Our adaptations reduce the chance that this happens. Furthermore, we propose a new algorithm that has a better message complexity.
