In light of substantial new discoveries of hot subdwarfs by ongoing spectroscopic surveys and the availability of new all-sky data from ground-based photometric surveys and the Gaia mission Data Release 2, we compiled an updated catalogue of the known hot subdwarf stars. The catalogue contains 5874 unique sources including 528 previously unknown hot subdwarfs and provides multi-band photometry, astrometry from Gaia, and classifications based on spectroscopy and colours. This new catalogue provides atmospheric parameters of 2187 stars and radial velocities of 2790 stars from the literature. Using colour, absolute magnitude, and reduced proper motion criteria, we identified 268 previously misclassified objects, most of which are less luminous white dwarfs or more luminous blue horizontal branch and main-sequence stars.
Key words: subdwarfs / stars: horizontal-branch / catalogs
