The decay τ−→K−KSντ has been studied using 430 × 106 e+e− → τ+τ events produced at a center-of-mass energy around 10.6 GeV at the PEP-II collider and studied with the BABAR detector. The mass spectrum of the K−KS system has been measured and the spectral function has been obtained. The measured branching fraction B(τ− → K−KSντ) =(0.739 ± 0.011(stat) ± 0.020(syst)) × 10−3 is found to be in agreement with earlier measurements.
