De Vaucouleurs Atlas Description:
This strange object could be interpreted as a late-type barred spiral with a single major arm. The bright part resembles a typical SBd type bar, but the single arm morphology is characteristic of SBdm or SBm . Alternatively, the galaxy could be an Sc sp with a broad dividing dust lane. The strange way bright knots line one side of the apparent lane would probably rule this interpretation out.
