There is also a category of extreme turbulence, although without actually trawling around for a definition, I couldn't say with certainty that it is an 'official' category.

Either way, it's a bit of a moot point in that any pilot with half a brain will avoid any area with reported or expected severe turbulence (most will also avoid moderate), or get out of just as soon as they possibly can. Nobody would wish to explore any higher categories of turbulence, and so a definition would be somewhat lacking in usefulness.
