  • We describe observed properties of the Type Iax class of supernovae (SNe Iax), consisting of SNe observationally similar to its prototypical member, SN 2002cx. The class currently has 25 members, and we present optical photometry and/or optical spectroscopy for most of them. SNe Iax are spectroscopically similar to SNe Ia, but have lower maximum-light velocities (2000 . |v| . 8000 kms −1 ), typically lower peak magnitudes ( 14.2 � MV,peak & 18.9 mag), and most have hot photospheres.
