A spectral line list with wavelengths and identifications for the 914-1177 A region is presented. The list is based on a Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) solar spectrum obtained from a rocket flight in 1966 and on spectra recorded by the NRL S082-B slit spectrograph flown in 1973 on the Skylab manned space station as part of the Apollo Telescope Mount. Three Skylab spectra were used for this work: a limb spectrum recorded at a position of arcsec outside the white-light limb, and two flare spectra. The wavelength list should be useful in analyzing some spectra to be obtained from the planner NASA Lyman Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer mission. A separate table listing observed or predicted forbidden lines that fall in the 914-1177 A range is presented, and some of the plasma diagnostic possibilities for spectral lines in this range are discused.
