We present two tables, the results of matching the Fornax Cluster Spectroscopic Survey (FCSS) both with the 2MASS extended source catalogue (XSC) and the 2MASS point source catalogue (PSC, Cat. II/246). The 2MASS 2nd release data described in Jarrett et al. (2000AJ....119.2498J) is used in this paper. xsc-fcss.dat contains 114 extended objects in a circle of radius 1degree centred on NGC1399, 84 are matched in the FCSS itself using a positional error of 3", 28 are in the brighter FLAIR sample of Drinkwater et al. (2001ApJ...548L.139D) and two are 15th magnitude galaxies in the Ferguson (1989AJ.....98..367F, Cat. ) Fornax Cluster Catalogue (FCC). psc-fcss.dat contains objects that are in the 2MASS PSC and also in the FCSS again using a positional error of 3". Objects with cz of less than 900km/s are removed as are objects which are also in the extended sample above to leave a sample of 228 confirmed galaxies. (2 data files).
