Group 5 Dwarf Planets

A Dwarf planet is a planet that is in the direct orbit of the sun, it is also a small planet.
The term 'Dwarf planet' was adopted in 2006 as part of a three-way categorization of bodies orbiting the Sun, brought about by an increase in discoveries of trans-Neptunian objects that rivaled Pluto in size, and finally precipitated by the discovery of an even more massive object, Eris.
