We present 26 new candidates (mainly from the POSS II) for nearby dwarf galaxies of which 17 have been detected in the 21-cm line from neutral hydrogen with the 100-m radiotelescope at Effelsberg. There is one new dwarf member of the IC342/Maffei group (Camelopardalis B), three new members each of the NGC6946 and the NGC672/IC1727 group. These seven galaxies ([FORMULA] 25% of our search list) are within the range of the Kraan-Korteweg-Tammann sample (i.e. [FORMULA]).
