See also Parallel volume-by-volume table of contents of a number of editions; see [1] for the code letters used there.

According to that table, three Thai editions have the same contents and order as K above. Citizendium has verified the contents, but not the order, for Syāmaraṭṭhassa Tepiṭaka.

Their own edition, also published in Thailand, is based on B and has the same contents and volume numbers as listed for B above, except that the whole of the Apadāna is fitted into volume 20, with 21 consisting of Buddhavaṃsa and Cariyāpiṭaka only.

Citizendium has verified the contents and order of the Nālandā Devanāgarī Pāli Series. It may be noted, however, that this edition, though edited by a Theravada monk, was published by the Indian state government of Bihar, so it is not clear whether it is really a Theravada edition.

Including manuscripts, old editions and secondary sources would give much more variety. Cf. Books of the Bible.
