LP 993-115 is a star system in the constellation Eridanus. It is located about 35 light-year away, and does not belong to any moving group.[2]

The primary component of the system, LP 993-115, is a red dwarf star with a spectral type of M3.5Ve, indicating emission lines in its spectrum. The secondary component of the system, LP 993-116, is a pair of red dwarfs orbiting each other, making this a triple star system. X-ray activity has been detected from LP 993-116. Confusingly, the secondary component is sometimes also referred to as LP 993-115BC.[2]
