A possible progenitor is CSS_J083720.2-060242, magnitude range from Catalina Real-time Transient Survey (CRTS) data about 19.3–21.0. Gaia DR2 position end figures are 20.23s, 43.7" (J2000.0, Ep. 2000.0); proper motion pmRA= -17.8, pmDE= +10.8 mas/yr. Other designations are USNO-B1.0 0839-0186052, GSC2.3 S3LG001777, PSO J083720.218-060243.557. No outbursts were recorded by the ASAS-SN Sky Patrol (Shappee et al. 2014ApJ...788...48S and Kochanek et al. 2017PASP..129j4502K) since 2012 Feb. 11; latest available observation is 2018 Oct. 17.592 UT, Vmag. 16.5 (contaminated by nearby stars); complete light curve at https://asas-sn.osu.edu/light_curves/e4b49b7b-6fc1-4eb1-a89d-88a43b35a83e --- Patrick Schmeer (Saarbrücken-Bischmisheim, Germany)

Kazuya Ayani, Bisei Astronomical Observatory, Ibara, Okayama, Japan, obtained a low-resolution spectrogram (range 400-800 nm; resolution 0.5 nm at H-alpha)of this TCP with the 1.01-m telescope of Bisei Astronomical Observatory on Oct. 21.8 UT. It shows absorption lines of H-beta, H-gamma, H-delta, He I (447.1 nm) on a blue continuum. H-alpha line is not discernible probably because the absorption is filled with the emission. These imply that it may be a dwarf nova. The spectrum can be viewed via website URL http://www.bao.city.ibara.okayama.jp/astro/2018/tcp/TCP_J08371988-0602457_Oct21.jpg .
