    not an easy thing to classify this galaxy: elliptical galaxy almost edge-on with tidal debris or spiral side viewed with same tidal appendix? There is quite a lot of this pattern within objects classified so far,. Could it be some kind of optical distortion or real tidal debris?

    Definitely not an elliptical. Disturbed spiral seen almost edge on.
