We present adaptive optics-assisted K-band integral field spectroscopy of the central cluster galaxy in 2A 0335+096 (z= 0.0349). The H2 v=1-0 S(1) emission is concentrated in two peaks within 600pc of the nucleus and fainter but kinematically active emission extends towards the nucleus. The H2 is in a rotating structure which aligns with, and appears to have been accreted from, a stream of Hα emission extending over 14kpc towards a companion galaxy. The projected rotation axis aligns with the 5...[Show more]
