Abstract

The mass-loss rates ?M provided for the Wolf-Rayet (WR) stars in Table 2 in the original paper were derived from the transformed radii Rt. While Rt is correctly defined in the paper (Eq. (2)), an incorrect exponent was implemented in the script used to calculate them (3/2 instead of 2/3). As a consequence, the ?M values, Fig. 22, and the coecients given in Table 5 in the original paper for the ?M relations (Eq. (6)) are impacted. Tables 1 and 2 in this corrigendum list the revised values, and Fig. 1 shows the revised version of Fig. 22 in the original paper. Moreover, a typo pertaining to the Rt value of BAT99 119 is corrected. Since the WR population studied here comprises a small fraction of the sample used to derive to mass-luminosity relation, the impact on the derived coecients is limited, with changes smaller than the respective 1 errors (cf. Table 5 in the original paper and Table 2 in this corrigendum). Moreover, these measurements have no impact on our main conclusions. (Figure Presented).
