Arp 313 (NGC 3991, 94, &95)

  Arp 313 is in the Galaxy Groups class.  The Atlas note is "linear string of knots like deformed spiral arms".  The largest galaxy is NGC 3995.  The E-like galaxy about 2' SW is NGC 3994 while the strange galaxy about 5' NW is NGC 3991.  The much fainter diffuse galaxy near the bright star is Mitchell Anonymous 1157+3215; it may also be listed in one obscure catalog but, if so, with a small position error.
