We obtained a spectrum of ASASSN-16cc/AT 2016aqf (ATels #8736 and #8738) on 2016 February 27.4 UT with the robotic FLOYDS instrument mounted on the LCOGT 2-meter telescope in Siding Spring, Australia. Using SNID (Blondin & Tonry 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024), we find a good fit to the Type II SN 2004et at -3 days at the redshift of the proposed host galaxy (z=0.004; Lauberts & Valentijn 1989, The Surface Photometry Catalogue of the ESO-Uppsala Galaxies, via NED). The spectrum is available on the Transient Name Server.
