We report the discovery of ULAS J131610.28+075553.0,a sdT6.5 dwarf in the UKIDSS Large Area Survey 2 epoch proper motion catalogue. This object displays significant spectral peculiarity, with the largest yet seen deviations from T6 and T7 templates in the Y and K bands for this subtype. Its large, � 1 arcsec/yr, proper motion suggests a large tangential velocity of Vtan � 240 340kms 1 , if we assume its MJ lies within the typical range for T6.5 dwarfs. This makes it a candidate for membership… Expand
