(Received 30 October 2000 / Accepted 11 January 2001 )

We present a catalogue of low-mass X-ray binaries. The catalogue is an updated version of the catalogue of van Paradijs (1995). This new catalogue contains 150 sources, 31 new low-mass X-ray binaries in addition to the 119 sources listed in van Paradijs' catalogue. The aim of this catalogue is to help the reader gain easy access to the recent literature (up to about August 2000) on individual sources, and to provide of some basic information on the X-ray sources and their counterparts in other wavelength ranges (UV, optical, IR, and radio). In cases where there is some doubt about the low-mass nature of the X-ray binary, this is mentioned. In an appendix we list the Anomalous X-ray Pulsars (AXPs), which nowadays are no longer thought to be low-mass X-ray binaries.

Key words: X-ray: stars -- (stars:) binaries: general -- catalogs -- pulsars: general
