We have detected a total of 236 MHOs, 156 of which are new detections, in 22 out of the 26 regions. We use H22.12µm/H22.25µm flux ratios, together with morphology, to separate the signatures of fluorescence associated with photo- dissociation regions (PDRs) from shocks associated with outflows in order to identify the MHOs. PDRs have typical low flux ratios of ∼1.5-3, while the vast majority of MHOs display flux ratios typical of C-type shocks (∼6-20). A few MHOs exhibit flux ratios consistent with expected values for J-type shocks (∼3-4), but these are located in regions that may be contaminated with fluorescent emission. Some previously reported MHOs have low flux ratios, and are likely parts of PDRs rather than shocks indicative of outflows. We identify a total of 36 outflows across the 22 target regions where MHOs were detected. In over half these regions, MHO arrangements and fluorescent structures trace features present in CO outflow maps, suggesting that the CO emission traces a combination of dynamical effects, which may include gas entrained in expanding PDRs as well as bipolar outflows. Where possible, we link MHO complexes to distinct outflows and identify candidate driving sources. Description: We obtained H2 2.12um, H2 2.25um, and H2r 2.13um (narrow-band continuum) images of 26 regions thought to contain massive YSOs, using the Near-infrared Camera and Fabry-Perot Spectrometer (NICFPS) on the Astrophysical Research Consortium (ARC) 3.5m telescope at the Apache Point Observatory (APO) in Sunspot, NM.

Note (1): Flag as follows: * = target were included in a near-infrared imaging survey conducted by Varricatt+ (2010, J/MNRAS/404/661). c = G077.4622+01.7600A is coincident with core C and anomalous H2 emission reported by Wolf-Chase+ (2013ApJ...762...87W) and a deeply embedded source reported by Yao+ (2000ApJ...542..392Y). d = Bipolar, but very compact, MHOs about Mol 160 A (Wolf-Chase+ 2012ApJ...745..116W). Note (2): Refers to objects that have IRAS colors similar to ultra-compact (UC) HII regions (H: high) and redder colors (L: low) (Wood & Churchwell 1989ApJ...340..265W ; Palla+ 1991A&A...246..249P). The designation (UC) indicates a candidate UC HII region based on the detection of centimeter-radio continuum emission at levels >1mJy within 40" of the IRAS position (Kurtz+ 1994, J/ApJS/91/659 ; Molinari+ 1998, J/A+A/336/339 ; Palau+ 2010, J/A+A/510/A5 ; Gomez-Ruiz+ 2016ApJS..222...18G). Note (3): Entries are from the WISE catalog of Galactic HII regions (Anderson+ 2014, J/ApJS/212/1 ; <[ABB2014] WISE GLLL.lll+BB.bbb> in Simbad). Note (4): Classifications (Anderson+ 2014, J/ApJS/212/1) indicate known (K), grouped (G), and candidate (C) HII regions, and radio-quiet (Q) objects.
