ATCA observation details. The array is operated in configurations with maximum
baselines ranging from 75 m to 6 km. For 750-m, 1.5-km and 6-km configurations,
4 subsets (A, B, C, D) each exist.

All quantities for SCG0018-4854 and SCG0122-3819 have been estimated taking into
account 5 member galaxies rather than four, as in the original catalog; for a more detailed explanation, see Sect. 3.5.

Measured values of H I deficiency for SCGs in our sample. Following VM01, we assume that a group
can be considered H I deficient if the difference between predicted and
observed mass is more than twice the standard estimate of the error.

Results from the GALFIT analysis on the member galaxies of our SCGs. The symbols used here have the same meaning as in Peng 2002; the position angle is measured from N to E counterclockwise.
The magnitude is the total magnitude of the component, corrected for galactic extinction; errors on the measured
magnitudes are of the order of 0.05 magnitudes and refer to the accuracy in the measurement of the zero-point
plus the sky subtraction and the statistical error from GALFIT.
Group SCG2159-3210 and galaxy SCG0122-3819 e have not been observed by us in the optical; for photometric measurement
the reader is referred to Hickson et al. 1982 and to NED.
