The Arecibo Galaxy Environment Survey (AGES, Auld et al. 2006) will map ~200 square degrees over the next years using the ALFA feed array at the 305-m Arecibo Telescope. AGES is specifically designed to investigate various galactic environments from local voids to interacting groups and cluster of galaxies. AGES will map 20 square degrees in the Coma-Abell1367 supercluster including the Abell cluster 1367 and its outskirts (up to ~2 virial radii). In Spring 2006 we nearly completed the observations of 5 square degrees in the range 11:34< RA< 11:54, 19:20<Dec<20:20 covering all the cluster core and part of its infalling region reaching a 5 sigma detection limit of M(HI)~4×10(8)Mxs2299 (assuming a velocity width ~200 km~s(−1)) at the distance of Abell1367 (~92 Mpc). An HI selected sample has been extracted from the datacube obtaining a catalogue of fluxes, recessional velocities, positions and velocity widths. We present a preliminary analysis of the properties of the HI sources and report the discovery of HI diffuse features within interacting groups at the periphery of Abell1367.
