PU CMa: A New SU UMa Star

As reported by R. Stubbings on April 1, the possible SU UMa-type dwarf nova PU CMa experienced an outburst (12.0mag) (vsnet-campaign-dn 2226). The fading from the outburst was reported on April 3 (vsnet-campaign-dn 2240, 2252).
The next outburst was faded on May 13, and after that, it again experienced an outburst of 12.0mag on May 24, as reported by R. Stubbiings. The outburst interval was quite short (vsnet-campaign-dn 2454). The object gradually faded from the possible superoutburst (vsnet-campaign-dn 2461, 2463, 2472). According to astro-ph/0209172 (Thorstensen and Fenton), PU CMa, together with the new findings with the VSNET Collaboration team, has been confirmed to be an SU UMa-type dwarf nova with a short orbital period (vsnet-campaign-dn 2830).
