Same question as the OP.
I classified as bar with a ring.

Hi everyone,
    Would you clasify this as a ring? (AHZ6000h2l)

Hi Mele
Welcome to the Zoo !  :D
I'd call this one a ringed galaxy (that is where the arms go round and make a ring).
But for all purposes you can call this a ring !
Happy hunting !  :D
