SSS_J134850.1-310835 is a bright (12 mag. at maximum) southern dwarf nova discovered by Stan Howerton during the course of the Catalina Real-Time Transient Survey SNHunt (supernova hunt) from 2010 to 2013:

It has also been detected by ASAS-3:

I thought it was worth mentioning instead of just adding it to VSX without further notice.

Cheers,
Sebastian
