We present a 8.4 GHz VLA survey of 50 optical counterparts to 46 ROSAT All-Sky survey (RASS) X-ray sources south of the Taurus-Auriga star-forming region. This survey detected 3 sources with a sensitivity limit of [FORMULA]. Merging our sample with other radio observations of sources in and around Taurus-Auriga, we find scarce radio emission among RASS sources south of the Taurus-Auriga molecular clouds. Our data support the evidence that these sources are older than weak-lined T Tauri stars, most of them probably being close to the ZAMS.

Key words: stars: pre-main sequence – radio continuum: stars – X-rays: stars
