Further to ATel #5455, we obtained another 40-minutes spectrum of SN 2013fs (was PSN J23194467+1011045) with WiFeS on 2013 Oct 24. The spectrum now strongly resembles an SN IIP, with clear P-Cygni H-alpha, with no evidence of broadened emission. SNID gives a best match to SN 1999em at phase +7. The previously observed emission from the Oct 08 spectrum which prompted a possible IIn classification was most likely due to the host, however we cannot rule out SN-related emission which has faded since the first epoch.
