We obtained an optical spectrum (range 360-920 nm) of ASASSN-16az (ATel #8614) on UT 2016 Feb 2.4 with WFCCD mounted on the du Pont 2.5m telescope at Las Campanas Observatory. Cross-correlation with a library of SN spectra using SNID (Blondin & Tonry 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024) shows that ASASSN-16az is a normal Type Ia at +10 days.
