  1. Order refers to the position among other moons with respect to their average distance from Jupiter.
  2. Label refers to the Roman numeral attributed to each moon in order of their discovery.
  3. Diameters with multiple entries such as "60×40×34" reflect that the body is not a perfect spheroid and that each of its dimensions have been measured well enough.
  4. Periods with negative values are retrograde.
  5. "?" refers to group assignments that are not considered sure yet.
