The Asiago Transient Classification Program (Tomasella et al. 2014, AN, 335, 841) reports the spectroscopic classification of Gaia14adf (20141125.12 UT, z=0.06) as a type-II about 2 weeks after maximum. The observations were performed with the Asiago 1.82 m Copernico Telescope (+AFOSC; range 340-820 nm; resolution 1.2 nm). The transient is close to SDSS J120929.60+200613.3, with photometric redshift z=0.076. Classification was done with GELATO (Harutyunyan et al. 2008, A&A, 488, 383) and SNID (Blondin and Tonry 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024).
