English: Trans-Neptunian objectssemi-major axis plotted vs eccentricity. Core region of the Kuiper belt, from 38 to 49 AU.
   Resonant plutinos and twotinos at 39.4 and 47.8 AU, respectively
   Other resonant objects besides plutinos and twotinos
   Classical Kuiper belt objects (cubewanos) located between plutinos and twotinos
   Inner and outer classical objects located at <39 and >49 AU, respectively
   Centaurs (asterisk) and other TNOs (dots)
