I've been looking for an exhaustive list of them, but I can't seem to find one in English. So far I've got these:

  • いる/居る
  • 得る
  • 出る
  • 似る
  • 煮る
  • 寝る
  • 着る
  • 干る
  • 鋳る
  • 射る
  • 癒る
  • 経る/歴る
  • みる's variants, 見る/観る/視る/診る/看る

Are there any more out there?

    Your list concords with akenotsuki.com/kyookotoba/shiryoo/bunrui/dooshi21.html, although it has one more — 率る.

    If you'd like, you can answer your own question with the complete list, then you can turn it into a Community answer. I didn't create a separate answer because your list is essentially already complete.

    @charlemagne It's because all ichidan verbs that have three or more morae have to be written with -iru or -eru in their okurigana. This does not apply to two-mora ones, as the i/e is in the kanji. So any verb outside of these ones whose okurigana ends in just -ru is a godan one regardless of whether it phonetically ends in -iru/-eru. That's why I was looking for an exhaustive list.

Adding to this list, there are also 沃る and 率る. That would seem to be all of them.

Here are some Japanese pages listing two-mora verbs, shared by jogloran and sundowner: https://www.akenotsuki.com/kyookotoba/shiryoo/bunrui/dooshi21.html
