This allows us to identify many metal lines in a wide wavelength range from the extreme ultraviolet to the near infrared. In previous spectral analyses, many metal lines in the ultraviolet spectrum of RX J0503.9-2854 have been identified. A complete line list of observed and identified lines is presented here. We compared synthetic spectra that had been calculated from model atmospheres in non-local thermodynamical equilibrium, with observations. In total, we identified 1272 lines (279 of them were newly assigned) in the wavelength range from the extreme ultraviolet to the near infrared. 287 lines remain unidentified. A close inspection of the EUV shows that still no good fit to the observed shape of the stellar continuum flux can be achieved although He, C, N, O, Al, Si, P, S, Ca, Sc, Ti, V, Cr, Mn, Fe, Cr, Ni Zn, Ga, Ge, As, Kr, Zr, Mo, Sn, Xe, and Ba are included in the stellar atmosphere models. Description: In this paper, we used the observed spectra (Extreme ultraviolet from EUVE, Far ultraviolet from FUSE, Ultraviolet from HST/STIS and optical in the framework of the Supernova Ia Progenitor Survey project (SPY).
