The moon lists included in this chapter follow increasing orbital period. For families and groups these are ordered by the distance of the largest member of the group, and then (except for the Amalthea group) listed in descending size based on diameter. The Amalthea group is listed by increasing distance and decreasing radioactivity (see section “Io”).
