We obtained an optical spectrum (range 350-890 nm) of PTSS-17baux (SN 2017imr), discovered by the PMO-Tsinghua Supernova Survey (PTSS, http://www.cneost.org/ptss/ ), on UT 2017 Nov. 28.7 with the Li-Jiang 2.4 m telescope (LJT+YFOSC) at Li-Jiang Observatory of Yunnan Observatories. The spectrum is consistent with that of a type IIP supernova at a few days after the maximum light. Cross-correlation with a library of supernova spectra using the "Supernova Identification" code (SNID; Blondin and Tonry 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024) shows that it matches with SN 2004et at t = +2 days from the maximum light. After correcting for a redshift of 0.0346 (via the narrow H-alpha emission in the spectrum) an expansion velocity of about 11000 km/s can be derived from the absorption minimum of H-alpha.
