We describe a catalogue of γ-ray source candidates selected using the minimum spanning tree (MST) algorithm on the nine year Fermi-LAT sky (Pass 8) at energies higher than 10 GeV. The extragalactic sky at absolute Galactic latitudes above 20° has been investigated using rather restrictive selection criteria, resulting in a total sample of 1342 sources. Of these, 249 are new detections that have not been previously associated with γ-ray catalogues. A large portion of these candidates have interesting counterparts, which are most likely blazars. In this paper, we report the main results of the catalogue selection and search of counterparts.
