The Asiago Transient Classification Program (Tomasella et al. 2014, AN, 335, 841) reports the spectroscopic classification of PSN J02051332+0606084. Informations on this transient are also available from the "Bright Supernova" website (http://www.rochesterastronomy.org/snimages/), and the CBAT Transient Object Followup Reports (http://www.cbat.eps.harvard.edu/index.html). The observations were performed with the Asiago 1.82 m Copernico Telescope (+AFOSC; range 340-820 nm; resolution 1.4 nm).

Name                  | Date (UT)    |  z       | Type  |  Phase     | Notes  
PSN J02051332+0606084 | 20150911.04  |  0.01138 |  Ib/c | pre-max    |   1     

1) The redshift of the host galaxy (IC 1776) is from Chengalur et al. 1993, ApJ 419, 30; via NED. The spectrum is similar to those of several broad line Type Ib/c supernovae before or close to maximum.

Classifications were done with GELATO (Harutyunyan et al. 2008, A&A, 488, 383) and SNID (Blondin and Tonry 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024). The Asiago classification spectra are posted at the website http://sngroup.oapd.inaf.it.
