Within the Young Suns Exoplanet Survey (YSES) we are observing a homogeneous sample of 70 solar-mass members of the approximately 16 Myr-old Lower Centaurus-Crux subgroup of the Scorpius-Centaurus association to search for sub-stellar companions. High-contrast imaging observations with VLT/SPHERE/IRDIS already revealed (i) a shadowed transition disk around Wray 15-788 that shows ...
