Histogram of the size distribution for the GDCs. The diameter of an equivalent area is proxy for the real elliptical size; individual size values of the GDCs are indicated by the ticks in the rug plot. The shaded bars indicate the subsample of 90 GDCs associated with HII regions from D88; individual values of these GDCs are indicated in white in the rug plot. The vertical lines indicate the FWHM beam size (169 pc) at 250 μm (dotted) and the median size value of 190 pc (dashed) for our entire sample.
