I don't think it's on the map, but I didn't look that closely.
I figured since it was further out than what Nyrath's map was
to be showing, it wouldn't be there, even if the +/-z direction
might have 'forced' it fall on the map.

A powerpoint presentation on characterization of extrasolar
terrestrial planets:

Here are a few links people might find interesting for formation
of habitable planets:

A *very* cool and basic educational flash animation about
habitable zones in our own solar system:
