|Issue Date:||2015||Journal:||MONTHLY NOTICES OF THE ROYAL ASTRONOMICAL SOCIETY||Number:||452||Issue:||1||First Page:||838||Abstract:||We present optical observations of an SN 2002cx-like supernova SN 2013en in UGC 11369, spanning from a phase near maximum light (t = + 1 d) to t = + 60 d with respect to the R-band maximum. Adopting a distance modulus of μ = 34.11 ± 0.15 mag and a total extinction (host galaxy+Milky Way) of A<SUB>V</SUB> ≈ 1.5 mag, we found that SN 2013en peaked at M<SUB>R</SUB> ≈ -18.6 mag, which is underluminous compared to the normal SNe Ia. The near maximum spectra show lines of Si II, Fe II, Fe III, Cr II, Ca II and other intermediate-mass and iron group elements which all have lower expansion velocities (i.e. ̃ 6000 km s<SUP>- 1</SUP>). The photometric and spectroscopic evolution of SN 2013en is remarkably similar to those of SN 2002cx and SN 2005hk, suggesting that they are likely to be generated from a similar progenitor scenario or explosion mechanism.||Acknowledgments:||We acknowledge the anonymous referee for valuable comments that helped us to improve the paper.
