Re:NGC 4212
The galaxy presents a mildly perturbed velocity field in the northern and
western regions. The optical and NIR images clearly reveal an important dust
obscuration effect in the galaxy. This may disturb the gaseous kinematics of NGC
4212, as particularly seen in the western region. The long-slit data showed
velocities down to ~-240 km s^-1^ (Rubin et al. 1999), which are not observed
here. As in the CO data (Sofue et al. 2003a), the core exhibits a steeper
velocity gradient than the rest of the disc. This could be due to the presence
of a hidden bar. A careful analysis of the NIR image by an isophotal ellispses
fitting indeed seems to reveal the presence of an elongated inner structure (see
also Buta et al. 2005).

Re:NGC 4212
Remarkably low discordance and good signal. Centrally peaked {sigma}_*_ field,
clear regular rotation and a significant peak in the curve of growth.
There are no previous measures of {sigma}_*_ for NGC 4212. See Figures 22
and 25b.

Re:NGC 4212
6.2 NGC 4212 The CO distribution consists of a molecular core and
extended straight arms in the direction of the major axis. The core is
shifted from the map center toward the NE by a few arcseconds. The
velocity field and PV diagram indicate that the rotation is rigid
body-like, while the core shows a steeper velocity gradient.

Re:NGC 4212
The morphological classification as determined by us is indicated in
parentheses next to the galaxy name, with our "chaotic circumnuclear
dust" (C) category now not including those galaxies with obvious dust
lanes (DL). Where the classification has already been made by Martini
et al. (2003), we indicate this with "-mp."

Spectra: There is only weak continuum on the NUC spectrum. There are
banana-shaped emission lines indicating rotation.

Re:NGC 4212
NGC 4212.---SABbc: Nuclear point source embedded in an elliptical
bulge. There is a smooth inner disk from which two spiral arms
emanate. The west arm has higher contrast and more knots. It can be
traced for ~180deg before fading. The east arm is much lower surface
brightness but can be traced ~270deg before fading. As the east arm
turns to the north, this gives the outer disk a strong north
asymmetry. Dust lanes are clearly visible in the east arm.

Re:NGC 4212
NGC 4212 (SAc, I=51.5^deg^)
The ellipticity peak near a=29" is related to spiral arms, not to a bar
structure. The inner isophotes, inside 10", show no clear twist: an oblate
bulge is probably sufficient to explain the profiles.

NGC 4212 is located in the northwestern
corner of the Virgo Cluster survey area, about 4^deg^
from the center of Virgo subcluster A associated
with NGC 4486. It is listed as a member in the
Virgo Cluster Catalog and is illustrated to a
common scale with other cluster members in the
Virgo Cluster atlas of spirals (Sandage, Binggeli,
and Tammann 1985a, panel 9).

Re:NGC 4212
NGC 4212 was not detected in the observations reported in Paper I because
the optical redshift on which we based our search was in error. A broad
bandwidth search with lower sensitivity at that time also missed detecting
the object because its emission is confused with galactic H I. In 1981 August
we searched again at the new optical redshift kindly communicated to us by
de Vaucouleurs. The galaxy was easily detected and mapped. The flux reported
in Table 1 is computed over the spectral range which is not confused with
galactic H I. If a simple interpolation is used to estimate the flux from
NGC 4212 hidden by galactic H I, then a total flux of ~12 Jy km s^-1^ is
obtained.
