Spectra (range 350-760 nm) of supernovae ASASSN-15kz (ATEL 7625) was obtained on June 13, 2015 UT with the F. L. Whipple Observatory 1.5-m telescope (+ FAST). Cross-correlation with a library of supernova spectra using the "Supernova Identification" code (SNID; Blondin and Tonry 2007, Ap.J. 666, 1024) indicates the spectrum of ASASSN-15kz is a IIP supernova at early phase.
