An updated survey of globular clusters in M31. II Newly discovered bright and remote clusters Authors: S. Galleti, M. Bellazzini, L. Federici, A. Buzzoni, F.

We obtained low resolution spectra of 48 targets selected from the XSC of 2MASS, as in Galleti et al. (2005). The observed candidates have been robustly classified according to their radial velocity and by verifying their extended/point-source nature from ground-based optical images. Among the 48 observed candidates clusters we found 5 genuine remote globular clusters…
