We obtained a spectrum of ASASSN-17cr/AT 2017ayk (ATel #10122) on 2017 February 25.5 UT with the robotic FLOYDS instrument mounted on the Las Cumbres Observatory 2-meter telescope on Haleakala, Hawai'i. Using SNID (Blondin & Tonry 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024), we find a good fit to the normal Type Ia SN 1995E 4 days after maximum light at the redshift of the proposed host galaxy (z=0.034; SDSS DR6, via NED). The spectrum is available on the Transient Name Server.
