Table 7:

Properties of the confirmed comoving substellar companions discovered in the young, nearby associations: TW Hydrae (TWA), $\beta $ Pictoris ($\beta $ Pic), Columba (Col) and Carina (Car).

- (*): For 2M1207 b, Mohanty et al. (2007) suggest a higher mass of $8\pm2~M_{\rm {Jup}}$ and the existence of a circum-secondary edge-on disk to explain their measured effective spectroscopic temperature of $1600\pm100$ K. (See discussion in Sect. 5.3.3.)
