We present 24 � m Spitzer MIPS photometric observations of the � 50 Myr open cluster IC 2391. Thirty-four cluster members ranging in spectral type from B3 to M5 were observed in the central square degree of the cluster. Excesses indicative of debris disks were discovered around one A star, six FGK stars, and possibly one M dwarf. For the cluster members observed to their photospheric limit, we find a debris disk frequency of 10 þ17 � 3 % for B‐A stars and 31 þ13 � 9 % for FGK stars using a 15…
