   [KPS2012] (Kharchenko+Piskunov+Schilbach+, 2012)= (MWSC) Write:<<[KPS2012] MWSC NNNN>> N: 3006+139+63 Object:Cluster of *  (SIMBAD class: Cl* = Cluster of Stars) Note:Galactic star cluster identification based on a catalog of proper motions from PPMXL and photometry from 2MASS.

2014A&A...568A..51S extends MWSC project having input list of 3784 targets by 714 new candidates. We have adopted for them that MWSC numbering starts with 5001. Since the search was performed for Northern and Southern hemispheres separately the candidate numbering is discontinuous: the numbers 5001≤MWSC<5499 are assigned at b>18.5, and 5500≤MWSC<5999 designate candidates at b←18.5.
