NGC 5632, NGC 5651, and NGC 5658 are more of the stars mistaken by the early Harvard observers (in this case, Harvard's then-director G. P. Bond) for nebulae. Bond's positions are good enough that Auwers picked up the correct stars in all three cases -- but still described them as nebulae. For NGC 5632, Auwers also noted an 11th magnitude star following the "nebula" on the parallel by 2 minutes 30 seconds of time. That star is GSC 4984-0094 at 14 29 15.66, -00 12 49.6 (n = 2, B1950.0).
W. M. Worssell, in Union Observatory Circular No 20 (1914), comments on objects seen on photographic plates taken with the Franklin-Adams Star-Camera. He notes that while NGC 5618 was seen, "NGC 5632 not found".
The RNGC (Sulentic and Tifft 1973) notes that this is a galaxy. Their coded description reads E,R,BM,COM1'NP,2'FO.
