Abstract (from CDS):

We aim at detecting and determining the properties of the host galaxy of the dark GRB 050223. We use VLT optical/NIR images coupled to Swift X-ray positioning, and optical spectra of the host galaxy to measure its properties. We find a single galaxy within the Swift error box of GRB 050223. It is located at z=0.584 and its luminosity is L∼0.4L*. Emission lines in the galaxy spectrum imply an intrinsic SFR>7M/yr, and a large extinction AV>2mag within it. We also detect absorption lines, which reveal an underlying stellar population with an age between 40Myr and 1.5Gyr. The identification of a host galaxy with atypical properties using only the X-ray transient suggests that a bias may be present in the former sample of host galaxies. Dust obscuration together with intrinsic faintness are the most probable causes for the darkness of this burst.
