We report that an optical spectrogram (range 340-820 nm; resolution 1.2 nm) of PSN J11023520+5035094 obtained on Nov. 24..97 UT with the Asiago 182-cm Copernico Telescope (+ AFOSC) in the framework of the Asiago Transient Classification Program (Tomasella et al. 2014, AN, 335, 841), shows that this a Type II supernova. A good match is found with several Type-II supernovae at about 10 days after explosion, if a redshift of 0.0223 is assumed for the host galaxy UGC 6109 (Falco et al. 1999 PASP 111, 438, via NED). UGC 6109 already hosted the Type IIn SN 2007rt (cfr. Li 2007, CBET 1148; Trundle et al. 2009, A&A 504, 945).
