The classifications of reported laser lines in Hg I have been critically examined and compared to available observations in spontaneous emission. The laser lines in the region 1–2.5 µ have been remeasured with greater accuracy. One new laser line has been found at 13 675 Å. Twelve laser lines are listed with their classifications. For two of them the assignments are not unique.
