Abstract: We have observed Hi emission and radio continuum emission from the compact group of galaxies HCG 95 with the Very Large Array (VLA) -- The National Radio Astronomy Observatory is operated by Associated Universities, Inc., under contract with the National Science Foundation. Two continuum sources coincide in with galaxies in this group: HCG 95 B (3.9 mJy) and HCG 95 C (6 mJy). Hi emission and absorption was detected in galaxy HCG 95 C. In addition we detected two so far unknown dwarf galaxies by their Hi emission within 3.5 arcmin of the group center. We did not detect galaxy b (with v = 8000 km/s -1 it is obviously a foreground object) and galaxy d --- an edge-on Sc galaxy. This group definitely is Hi deficient compared with the average Hi content expected for spiral galaxies of the same luminosity and type. The first-ranked elliptical galaxy HCG 95 A might be responsible for the observed Hi deficiency in this group.
