M. De Pasquale (UCL-MSSL) and T. Roegiers (PSU)
report on behalf of the Swift/UVOT team:

The Swift/UVOT began settled observations of the field of GRB 150626A
98 s after the BAT trigger (Roegiers et al., GCN Circ. 17960).
No optical afterglow consistent with the XRT position (Evans
GCN Circ. 17961) is detected in the initial UVOT exposures.
Preliminary 3-sigma upper limits using the UVOT photometric system
(Breeveld et al. 2011, AIP Conf. Proc. 1358, 373) for the first
finding chart (FC) exposures and subsequent exposures are:

The magnitudes in the table are not corrected for the substantial
Galactic extinction due to the reddening of E(B-V) = 0.37 in the
direction of the burst (Schlegel et al. 1998).
