N. Morrell (Las Campanas Observatory), Benjamin J. Shappee (Carnegie Observatories) report/s a classification of object: SN 2016csd

Type: SN Ia
Redshift: 0.037

Remarks: We report optical spectroscopy (range 370-910 nm) of ASASSN-16fx/AT2016csd using the du Pont 2.5-m telescope (+ WFCCD) at Las Campanas Observatory on UT 2016 June 18.4. We performed a cross-correlation with a library of supernova spectra using the "Supernova Identification" code (SNID; Blondin and Tonry 2007, Ap.J. 666, 1024) and found the spectrum of ASASSN-16fx to be consistent with a normal Type Ia SN at +1 day after maximum light.

The following Classification spectrum was provided:
