Title: CSS091109:035759+102943 - a candidate polar

Abstract: We report optical time-resolved photometry of the CRTS transient CSS091109:035759+102943. Pronounced orbital variability with a 114 min period, large X-ray variability and the IR to X-ray spectral energy distribution suggest a classification as a magnetic cataclysmic binary, a likely AM Herculis star or polar.
