    Is there a special name for this type of galaxy? It looks like a theta.

    This is a barred outer ring-structure spiral /disc . The arms of this galaxy are wound so tightly around the circular core and bar that they create the appearance of a ring. NGC 1300 would appear very similar to this galaxy if 1300 lacked star formation and had its arms a little more tightly wound than they currently are 😃
