We report a spectroscopic observation of PSN J03175245-0718021, located at RA= 03:17:52.45, DEC = -07:18:02.1 (J2000). A spectrum (range 320-1000 nm) obtained robotically on July 13.72 UT with the FLOYDS spectrograph at "Faulkes Telescope South" at Siding Spring shows a blue continuum with He I features with a P-cygni profile. No Hydrogen lines are visible. Comparisons with a library of supernova spectra using the "GELATO" code (Harutyunyan et al. 2008, A.Ap.488, 383) yields the best match with the peculiar Ib SN 2001gh (Elias-rosa et al. 2009, AIPC, 1111).
