For O-rich AGB stars from Boyer et al. (2012) we added the total numbers of anomalous O-rich AGB stars (6372) and DPR of 0.32 × 10-6      M   yr-1 from these stars to those of the regular O-rich AGB stars.


The category “extreme stars” in Riebel et al. (2012) is a subset of O-rich and C-rich AGB stars.
