Among the so-called, long period variables (LPVs), which are known to follow particular sequences in the period-luminosity diagram, we find long secondary period variables whose variability origin remains a matter of debate. We analyze data for the 856864 variable stars that have been discovered in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) that are present in the EROS-2 database, to detect, classify, and characterize LPVs. Description: Photometric parameters for LPVs discussed in the paper. EROS-2 data were used to determine mean RE magnitude, mean BE RE color, RE band amplitude and up to five periods in RE band. 2MASS J, Ks magnitudes and Spitzer [3.6] magnitude are displayed in case of cross-correlation with LPVs. The table provides a spectral classification based on 2MASS and Spitzer data and special remarks. File Summary:
