Abstract (from CDS):

We present the study of the CoRoT transiting planet candidate 101186644, also named LRc01E14780. Analysis of the CoRoT lightcurve and the HARPS spectroscopic follow-up observations of this faint (mV = 16) candidate revealed an eclipsing binary composed of a late F-type primary (Teff=6090±200K) and a low-mass, dense late M-dwarf secondary on an eccentric (e=0.4) orbit with a period of ∼20.7 days. The M-dwarf has a mass of 0.096±0.011M, and a radius of 0.104–0.006+0.026R, which possibly makes it the smallest and densest late M-dwarf reported so far. Unlike the claim that theoretical models predict radii that are 5-15% smaller than measured for low-mass stars, this one seems to have a radius that is consistent and might even be below the radius predicted by theoretical models.
