This page contains a list of spectroscopically confirmed M6 – M9 dwarfs. Any object with a spectral type of L0 or later in the optical or near-infrared will be included in the List of All UltraCool Dwarfs, but not in this one. I also acknowledge the use of the Database of Ultracool parallax from Trent Dupuy. The object thus contains mainly brown dwarfs, but also a few low-mass stars and planetary companions. I also welcome adding directly imaged exoplanets, since this can add useful informations in color-magnitude diagrams.
The goal of this page is to include a number of experts throughout the brown dwarfs community that will curate the list directly on Google Drive, which will automatically be updated here. Do not hesitate to contact me if you find any mistake in the table, or if you wish to become a curator of this list.
You can also view the table in a more convenient way here, as well as download it with “File/Download As/”. The CSV format is simple and convenient :

WARNING : The current cross-matches with 2MASS and WISE are tentative.
List of Other Curators :
– Will Best (IfA)
List of Major Updates :
2014 September 22 – First upload.
List of Things that still need to be done :
– Change references to bibcodes.
– Include missing proper motions from recent literature (2012 +).
– Clean up the 2MASS / WISE cross-matches.
– Add NIR spectral types.
– Add more objects.
– Add links to SIMBAD and Vizier.
– Include tangential velocities, Galactic positions and space motions (long-term).
