In a field of 100 square degrees around 26 Com, 238 X-ray sources have been discovered by ROSAT during the All-Sky-Survey observations. These sources were identified using objective prism spectrograms taken with the Hamburg Schmidt telescope on Calar Alto (courtesy N. Bade) and including the positional accuracy of typically 30" and the X-ray to optical luminosity ratio. In an ongoing investigation of these X-ray sources on more than 400 plates of the Sonneberg astrographs 400/1600 mm and 400/2000 mm, a total of 5 of the M type counterparts were found to be flare stars. In Table 1 we give the ROSAT name (column 1), the new designation as a Sonneberg variable (2), the position of the optical counterpart (3), the magnitude range of the newly discovered flare stars (4), the ROSAT PSPC countrate during the All-Sky-Survey (5), the distance D between X-ray and optical position (6). All 5 objects had not been known to be flaring. The real amplitudes must be larger than those given in column 3 because the (unknown) duration of the flares is usually much shorter than the exposure time of the plates. The figures give APM finding charts of these new flare stars.
