Abstract: The Hyades supercluster is a kinematically defined group of stars, which are located across the Galactic disk. Advocated by Eggen in the 1970's as part of the Hyades open cluster, recent simulations suggest the Hyades supercluster is a dynamical stream caused by spiral density waves. We present high resolution elemental abundances of probable supercluster members. We recover supercluster stars that share a similar chemical signature as the Hyades open cluster. Our results support the Hyades supercluster being at least partly the debris of an originally large star-forming event.
