Abstract: We present the results of a search for cataclysmic variables (CVs) in the Calán-Tololo survey. We detected a total number of 21 CVs, 12 of them are previously unknown objects. Our results suggest that the mismatch between the theoretically predicted sample and the observed one is not due to observational bias but has to be resolved by a revision of the theoretical models.
