    What is this likely to be about? poor referencing? weird structure? What exactly can 'anomalies' mean?

    It probably means there's evidence of plagiarism, collusion or falsification of results. I don't think they'd call you in for poor referencing or bad structure, they'd just tell you as feedback. If you recently handed in a paper which involved a lot of quotes or code then I wouldn't worry about it, those increase similarity % massively which could push you over the line for an automatic call in, once someone reads it however you'll be let off quite quickly.

    Most likely to do with plagiarism and/or collusion.
