We report the spectrum of the recent M31N 2010-10a which was obtained on UT Oct 16 with the 3.5m telescope at the Apache Point Observatory. The spectrum shows strong Balmer series, O I 8447 and 7773, and different Fe emission lines. The Halpha has a FWHW of ~2,500 km/s. The spectrum confirms M31N 2010-10a as a Fe II nova in M31.
