We report the discovery of the L dwarf WISE J174102.78−464225.5, which was discovered as part of a search for nearby L dwarfs using the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE). The distinct triangular peak of the H-band portion of its near-infrared spectrum and its red near-infrared colors (J − KS = 2.35 ± 0.08 mag) are indicative of a young age. Via comparison to spectral standards and other red L dwarfs, we estimate a near-infrared spectral type of L7 ± 2 (pec). From a comparison to… 
WISEA J064750.85-154616.4: a new nearby L/T transition dwarf

THE HAWAII INFRARED PARALLAX PROGRAM. II. YOUNG ULTRACOOL FIELD DWARFS
We present a large, uniform analysis of young (≈10–150 Myr) ultracool dwarfs, based on new high-precision infrared (IR) parallaxes for 68 objects. We find that low-gravity (vl-g) late-M and L dwarfs
A Statistical Survey of Peculiar L and T Dwarfs in SDSS, 2MASS, and WISE
We present the final results from a targeted search for brown dwarfs with unusual near-infrared colors. From a positional cross-match of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS), 2-Micron All-Sky Survey
POPULATION PROPERTIES OF BROWN DWARF ANALOGS TO EXOPLANETS
We present a kinematic analysis of 152 low surface gravity M7-L8 dwarfs by adding 18 new parallaxes (including 10 for comparative field objects), 38 new radial velocities, and 19 new proper motions.
Optical and Near-infrared Spectra of σ Orionis Isolated Planetary-mass Objects
We have obtained low-resolution optical (0.7–0.98 μm) and near-infrared (1.11–1.34 μm and 0.8–2.5 μm) spectra of 12 isolated planetary-mass candidates (J = 18.2–19.9 mag) of the 3 Myr σ Orionis star
BANYAN. VII. A NEW POPULATION OF YOUNG SUBSTELLAR CANDIDATE MEMBERS OF NEARBY MOVING GROUPS FROM THE BASS SURVEY
We present the results of a near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopic follow-up survey of 182 M4–L7 low-mass stars and brown dwarfs (BDs) from the BANYAN All-Sky Survey (BASS) for candidate members of
CWISE J014611.20–050850.0AB: The Widest Known Brown Dwarf Binary in the Field
While stars are often found in binary systems, brown dwarf binaries are much rarer. Brown dwarf–brown dwarf pairs are typically difficult to resolve because they often have very small separations.
Spectral library of age-benchmark low-mass stars and brown dwarfs
In recent years, some extremely red brown dwarfs have been discovered. They were believed to have a low surface gravity, but many of their spectral characteristics are similar to those of
Discovery of a brown dwarf companion to the A3V star β Circini
We report the discovery of an L dwarf companion to the A3V star \beta{} Circini. VVV J151721.49-585131.5, or \beta{} Cir B, was identified in a proper motion and parallax catalogue of the Vista

Discovery of a Very Young Field L Dwarf, 2MASS J01415823–4633574
TLDR
It is suggested that lithium becomes weaker at lower gravity like all other alkali lines and thus needs to be carefully considered before being used as a diagnostic of age or mass for objects in this regime.

TLDR
The substantial increase in the number of known late-type T dwarfs provides a population that will be used to test models of cold atmospheres and star formation and supports the possible re-emergence of clouds after the L/T transition.
