We obtained a spectrum of PSN J01505356-3600308, discovered by Greg Bock (BOSS) and posted on the CBAT TOCP, on 2015 October 16.7 UT with the robotic FLOYDS instrument mounted on the Faulkes Telescope South. Using SNID (Blondin & Tonry 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024), we find good fits to SN 1991bg a few days after maximum light at the redshift of the proposed host galaxy (z=0.019; Lauberts & Valentijn 1989, The Surface Photometry Catalogue of the ESO-Uppsala Galaxies, via NED).
