1 - The expansion velocity measured from the absorption of the dominant Halpha feature is about 6200 km/s. Redshift of the host galaxy was retrieved from NED (http://ned.ipac.caltech.edu)

Classification was 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.
