The classification of PSN J02245064+1610543 reported in ATel 4386 was based on an erroneously identified spectrum. As a consequence the second part of that communication should be replaced by the following: The spectrogram of PSNJ02245064+1610543 obtained on Sept 18.02 UT shows broad Balmer lines with P-Cygni profiles. Adopting for the host galaxy PGC 9159 the redshift z = 0.0272 (LEDA), the best fit with the GELATO tool (Harutyuyan et al. 2008, A.Ap. 488, 383) on a library of supernovae spectra is with a type II or IIb about one week past maximum.
