We report that a spectrogram of MLS130517:131841-070443 (aka CSS130530:131841-070443) was obtained on Jun. 10.96 UT with the 4.2-m William Herschel Telescope (+ ISIS; range 3270-9990 A; resolution about 1000) The spectrum has a blue continuum with several broad absorption features. Narrow absorption from the Mg II H&K resonance doublet (2795.5/2802.7 Angs) arising either in the host galaxy interstellar medium or in intervening intergalactic medium is detected at redshift of z=0.1918 +/-0.002.
