NGC 4618, the slightly bigger dwarf galaxy that is "harassing" NGC 4625, also has just one arm. Go figure.

One-armed NGC 4618 (bottom) and one-armed NGC 4625 (top).
Note the ultraviolet outer arms surrounding NGC 4625.

Interesting that everything visible in the ultraviolet image is also visible in deep optical images.
