Abstract

We report the discovery of two previously unknown WN3 stars in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). Both are bright (15th magnitude), isolated and located in regions covered in earlier surveys, although both are relatively weak lined. We suggest that there may be O(10) remaining undiscovered WNE stars in the LMC.
