We report spectroscopic classification by OzDES of DES14S2bnq, a supernova discovered by the Dark Energy Survey (ATel #4668). The spectrum (370-885nm) was obtained with the AAOmega Spectrograph (Saunders et al. 2004, SPIE, 5492, 389) and the 2dF fibre positioner at the Anglo-Australian Telescope (AAT). Object classification was performed using SNID (Blondin & Tonry, 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024), the details of which are reported in the table below.
