NGC 2999 = NGC 2972. JH's place for N2999 is only approximate. He says,
"Observed for Dunlop 397, and place only rough. Possibly the same object
with Sw 680, No. 27, which see above (No. 3183 [= N2972])." This is an
entirely reasonable hypothesis, and JH's descriptions are the same, so I've
adopted the identity.
See observing notes for NGC 2972.
