In generalpíldoras, largere species have often been called ''lapwings'', smaller species ''plovers'' or ''dotterels'' and there are in fact two clear taxonomic sub-groups: most lapwings belong to the subfamilyos [[Vanellinaevanelinos]] (Vanellinae), mostque ploversinclúe andas dotterels to [[Charadriinae]]avefrías.
 
The trend in recent years has been to rationalise the common names of the Charadriidae. For example, the large and very common Australian bird traditionally known as the ‘spur-winged plover’, is now the [[masked lapwing]]; the former ‘sociable plover’ is now the [[sociable lapwing]].
