The Asiago Transient Classification Program (Tomasella et al. 2014, AN, in press, http://arxiv.org/abs/1403.7233 ) reports the spectroscopic classification of PSN J22340480+6826240 in PGC 166758. Target was supplied by the IAU Transient Objects Confirmation Page list (http://www.cbat.eps.harvard.edu/unconf/tocp.html). The observation was performed with the Asiago 1.82 m Copernico Telescope (+AFOSC; range 340-820 nm; resolution 1.3 nm).
