The mass of the most massive star of each association is plotted as a function of stellar density, estimated as the number of bona fide OB members divided by the squared radius of the association. Different symbols represent NOB, as indicated in the legend. Associations #94 and #184 with density 1.2 and 1.9 are left out of the plot for clarity.
