IC 3612 = IC 3616. Royal Frost found these "two" nebulae on two different overlapping Harvard plates. His two positions are only a tenth of a minute of time apart, and his descriptions are similar. Since there is no other galaxy nearby which is bright enough to be picked up on the plates, the identity is virtually certain.
