We present an extended and improved version of the provisional I-band catalog of DENIS galaxies. Galaxies not cross-identified with already known galaxies have been visually checked using the DSS1 images and, occasionnally, the coordinates were remeasured. The typical accuracy of coordinates is about . The typical error on I-band magnitude is about 0.2 mag. The final catalog gives the most common names, the J2000 coordinates, the I-band magnitude, the diameter, the axis ratio and the position angle for about galaxies. It covers roughly 67% of the southern hemisphere. It is homogeneously sampled up to 14.5 mag. It is available through the Centre de Données de Strasbourg (CDS). The data are also available via the LEDA database.
