We re-examine the classification of supersymmetric extended objects in the light of the recently discovered Type II p-branes, previously thought not to exist for p > 1. We find new points on the brane-scan only in D = 10 and then only for p = 3 (Type IIB), p = 4 (Type IIA), p = 5 (Types IIA and IIB) and p = 6 (Type IIA). The case D = 10, p = 2 (Type IIA) also exists but is equivalent to the previously classified D = 11 supermembrane. © 1993.
