Intermediate infrared colours of M-dwarf stars.
M-dwarfs are shown to occupy a region of the JHK two-colour diagram which is quite distinct from that occupied by M giants. The JHKL colours of early M-dwarfs are found to be predicted fairly well by a recent model which is dominated by H2O opacity in the infrared.
