HD 38858 is a G-type star[3] with one detected planet. The planet, designated HD 38858 b, is about twice the mass of Uranus and orbits in the star's habitable zone.[8]

The last observation of this system for a dust disc or comet belt was in 2009 by the Spitzer telescope; a belt was inferred at 102 AU.[7] It has an inclination of 48◦.[9]
