In our previous study we found that large-scale stellar bars at >1kpc from the nucleus are more common in NLS1s than BLS1s. In this paper we find that NLS1s preferentially have grand-design dust spirals within ∼1kpc of their centers. We also find that NLS1s have a higher fraction of nuclear star-forming rings than BLS1s. We find that many of the morphological differences are due to the presence or absence of a large-scale stellar bar within the spiral host galaxy. In general, barred Seyfert 1 galaxies tend to have grand-design dust spirals at their centers, confirming the results of other researchers. The high fraction of grand-design nuclear dust spirals and stellar nuclear rings observed in NLS1s' host galaxies suggests a means for efficient fueling of their nuclei to support their high Eddington ratios.

Note (1): All images except as noted were taken with F606W filter. Note (2): Flags as follows: a = Observed with the F814W filter b = Galaxy positioned in WF2 chip c = Galaxy positioned in WF4 chip d = Not included in Figure2 e = Excluded from analysis, see Section 2.1 f = Other name: NGC4748 g = The MAST fits header entry for this galaxy mentions it as II ZW 10 which is incorrect Note (3): Some values for the Hubble stage T were reassigned using classifications from The de Vaucouleurs Atlas of Galaxies, Buta, Corwin and Odewahn (in preparation). Note (4): Computed from the corrected asymptotic blue magnitude BT0 (corrected for interstellar extinction and the K-correction). We used BT0-BMAG=5log(cz/H0)+25, with H0=71km/s/Mpc (Spergel et al., 2003ApJS..148..175S). Note (5): Large-scale morphology description are: S = spiral SB = barred spiral E = elliptical I = irregular P = point source ? = not classified Note (6): Primary nuclear morphology classes are: ND = no significant dust DS = dust spiral DB = dust bar A = amorphous structures DL = large-scale dust lane NR = Nuclear Ring SBS = Star-burst (nuclear) Spiral Secondary nuclear morphology classes are: GD = grand-design spiral FL = flocculent multi-arm spiral ? = for no secondary classification
