 First, there was an error in my previous list.
The 0D9h does a RET and not a CALL.
 I looked at a Intel 8080A last night. All of
the codes seemed to do the same. The values
in the PSW were different. On the Intel part,
bits 5 and 3 always returned '0' while bit
1 always returned '1'. Compared to the NEC
that always returned '1' on both 1 and 3
but had the -/+ on bit 5.
