De Vaucouleurs Atlas Description:

In spite of the high inclination , the morphology of this galaxy is very clear. The outer arms form a large R1' OLR subclass pseudoring. In the central regions, leading dust lanes are seen that are associated with a highly foreshortened bar. Surrounding the bar is an inner pseudoring that is nearly complete. There is structure in the central area, but it does not appear to be ringlike.
