Thank you for reply - I felt as if I am talking to myself.

Please tell the appropriate reference.
Let's distinguish from the very start, how and if this word is used in
Suttanta Pitaka and in the Commentaries.
I have not found a single occurence of the word 'kilesa' in Digha,
Anguttara and Samyutta Nikayas, and only two occurences in Majjhima
Nikaya, at 3.275.

Thank you for the reference to excellent Vatthupama Sutta
There are similar lists of seventeen items in each last discourse of
Books 3 to 11 of the Anguttara Nikaya, which carry the title
Ragapeyyala, the Repetitive Text on Greed (etc.), with 'dosa' and
'moha' included. So this is not a subdivision.
There are also lists of four upakkilesaa at A.2.54, and five at
Probably the distinction between 'upakkilesa' and 'kilesa' can be a
criterion of the age of the text. In the earliest texts the word
'kilesa' is not used.
