Further to ATel#5837, here we report the classification of CRTS optical transients observed with the Keck-I+LRIS on May 26 UT. Spectra were cross-correlated using SNIDs software (Blondin and Tonry 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024) and the following results were found:

CRTS ID Disc. Mag Type Match age z Notes
CSS140509:161445+023534 18.6 Ia 1994ae +9 0.08
CSS140505:114217+383529 18.8 Ia-91bg 1991bg +19 0.05 1

Notes: 1, spectrum appears highly reddened.  

All CRTS transients are discovered within minutes of observation and openly published to VOEvent network subscribers (such as http://Skyalert.org ). Links to all CRTS transients can be found at http://crts.caltech.edu/. We are grateful to the all the observers involved in follow-up observations.
