# How many mesons are there?

I've been looking for a list of all the mesons there are, but cannot seem to find it online. Anyone know just how many mesons have been discovered? A link to a page that shows the names of each meson would also be appreciated.

Browse around at the Particle Data Group. It's the most important repository of information about elementary particles. I think you'll find what you want in the Summary Tables section: a list of mesons in a 94-page PDF file. Have fun! :-)
