We consider probabilistic inductive inference of Gödel numbers of total recursive functions when the set of possible errors is allowed to be infinite, but with bounded density. We have obtained hierarchies of classes of functions identifiable with different probabilities up to sets with fixed density. The obtained hierarchies turn out to be different from those which we have in the case of exact identification.
