We reported the detection of one ZTF candidate counterpart [1] in the combined localization region of the gravitational-wave candidate S230904n [2] and the coincident track-like neutrino event reported by IceCube [3]. 

The previously reported right ascension was wrong and would have put the transient outside the localization region. The correct coordinates are:
