We obtained a spectrum of ASASSN-15ps (ATel #8066) on 2015 September 20.7 UT with the robotic FLOYDS instrument mounted on the Faulkes Telescope South. Using SNID (Blondin & Tonry 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024), we find several good fits to the normal Type Ia SN 1998aq 2-6 days after maximum light at redshifts around z=0.04.
