The Asiago Transient Classification Program (Tomasella et al. 2014, AN, 335, 841) reports the spectroscopic classification of Gaia14adg (Date 20141125.14 UT, z =0.154) as a type-II around max. 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 J115032.78-020617.0, with photometric redshift z=0.167. Classification was done with GELATO (Harutyunyan et al. 2008, A&A, 488, 383) and SNID (Blondin and Tonry 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024). We acknowledge, for the Gaia transients, ESA Gaia (, and the DPAC Photometric Science Alerts Team ( (Rixon et al, 2014, ATel #6593).
