The K-band period-luminosity relation for our sample of LMC Cepheids based on the absolute magnitudes determined with the IRSB method as calibrated in Paper I. The best fitting line from the data is overplotted in black, and the best fitting line to the Milky Way sample of Paper I is overplotted with a dashed line in red. It is appreciated that the LMC and Milky Way PL relations agree extremely well both in slope and zero point.
