Quarkyonic matter is a predicted phase between deconfined ideal QGP and Hadronic matter where the dominant degrees of freedom are quarks. Collective flow measurements indicate that the flow developed in QGP, as flow measurements scale with the constituent quark numbers. The possible reasons for the observed constituent quark number scaling were analyzed, arriving to the conclusion that collective flow must have frozen out early when quarks were the dominant constituents of matter.
