The effects of differential reddening on the UBV colors of Pleiades members have been removed for stars earlier than (B—V)o = 1ṃ00, and the dereddened colors have been found to exhibit an ultraviolet excess of δ(U-B) — + 0ṃ03 with respect to Hyades stars. A correction of + 0ṃ15 in MΓ at constant (B—V) has been derived for the Hyades main sequence to adjust it to Pleiades metallicity, and this has been fit to Pleiades late-type dwarfs in order to define a new photometric ZAMS for typical solar neighborhood stars of spectral types A, F, and G. A zero-point of 3.15 was adopted for the Hyades distance modulus based upon a review of available astrometric data, and the corresponding Pleiades distance modulus is 5.56.
