Abstract: We have found a new, very compact group of galaxies characterized by a median projected separation between galaxies of 5.2 / h kpc and a very low velocity dispersion. All the observed member galaxies show emission line spectra and a disturbed morphology. From these properties it emerges that this compact group is in an extremely advanced stage of evolution.
