In this list of verses in surah 42 http://quran.com/42/7-16, 13 is started with a star, what does it indicate?

enter image description here

I don't think it is marking a break of ruku, because in my Qur'an ruku ends at verse number 9 and a new ruku starts from 10. So, what is this star about?

The star notation, called rubʿ l-hizb, marks the starting of a quarter hizb.

Hizb being one of the two groups (plural: ahzab) a Juz' is divided into.
