Inspection of CCD spectra (range 420-790 nm), obtained on June 20.7 UT with the 2.4-m Hiltner telescope (+ CCDS) at MDM Observatory, shows that CSS090615:211849-055711 (ATel #2087) is a normal type-Ia supernova. Comparison with a library of supernova spectra using the "SuperNova Identification" code (SNID; Blondin and Tonry 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024) provides a good match with the normal type-Ia SN 1995E at maximum light.
