Notes. Column 1: name. Column 2: Hubble type T, as in Walcher et al. (2014), and group membership G (NED/SIMBAD). Column 3: redshift-based distance in Mpc. Column 4: available stellar mass estimates, and Column 5: effective radius, determined by growth-curve analysis of SDSS images of each galaxy, as in Walcher et al. (2014). Column 6: global kinematic misalignment angle Ψ. Cosmological angular size distances are calculated by adopting H0 = 70 km s-1 Mpc-1, Ωm = 0.3, ΩΛ = 0.7.

(a)

from WISE photometry by Norris et al. (2016),

(b)

from CALIFA DR3, as in Walcher et al. (2014).

(*)

UGC 10695 is listed as a further candidate, showing evidence for prolate rotation.
