Abstract

B and R CCD and H I observations of the Virgo dwarf galaxy IC 3475 were obtained. The galaxy is very large, having a diameter of about 10 kpc; its hydrogen content is at least 60 times smaller than that of a normal dwarf irregular galaxy; and the galaxy shows a central bar structure with knots and inclusions scattered throughout its body but with the majority in the bar region. The results support the hypothesis that IC 3475 is a dwarf irregular galaxy that has been stripped of its neutral gas.
