1998A&AS..127..409K A list of new nearby dwarf galaxy candidates. Karachentseva V.E., Karachentsev I.D. Received February 6; accepted May 29, 1997 Abstract. To increase completeness of the distance limited sample of nearby galaxies from the Kraan-Korteweg & Tammann (1979) catalogue we undertook a search for small companions of larger known galaxies which have corrected radial velocities within 500km/s. Based primarily on the POSS-II and ESO/SERC films we found 260 nearby dwarf galaxy candidates with angular diameters a >~ 0.5 arcmin. More than 50% of the objects were revealed for the first time. As we suppose, a significant part of them (about 30%) may really belong to the Local Volume sample. Key words: galaxies: distances and redshifts - galaxies: irregular
