Abstract: The recent PHENIX mid-rapidity measurements of multiplicity distributions forcentrality bins are analyzed in the framework of superposition models. A simplesuperposition of pp events is shown to disagree with the heavy ion data fordispersion as a function of centrality. However, it is suggested that a modeldescribing properly the pp data and based in the -wounded quark- idea may becompatible with the multiplicity data for heavy ion collisions.
