Object name: NGC3162
NGC 3162 is a distorted near face on spiral galaxy in the neck of Leo the Lion about 72 to 74 million light-years distant by redshift and non-redshift measurements. One paper describes it "NGC 3162 is an Sbc spiral of low inclination. One arm is prominent, the other one much weaker. This could be a consequence of an interaction." I find no nearby galaxy it might have interacted with. Only PGC 029756 is in the image at the right distance. It is rather small and undistorted making it an unlikely candidate.
