Because it deals with upasana, some call shivasamkalpasukta an upanishad.

These together form the 31st adhyaya of Vajasaneyi Samhita

The apratiratha sukta is rks 33-44 of the 17th adhyaya of the V.S.
Also after this, it is the custom to recite 17.44-49.

The maitra sukta is V.S. 33.30-43 and also three mantras from the 7th
adhyaya are include between the 4th and 5th rks.

This is with a few minor differences the same as the Taittireya Samhita
version. It is the 16th adhyaya of the V.S.

Actually, these are also counted as part of the 6th adhyaya

This called the 7th adhyaya. It is the 18th adhyaya of the V.S.

The Shanti is the 8th adhyaya and it is followed by the svastiprarthana.
