We show that SN 2013by and other SNe IIL in the literature, after their linear decline phase that start after maximum, have a sharp light-curve decline similar to that seen in SNe IIP. This light-curve feature has rarely been observed in other SNe IIL due to their relative rarity and the intrinsic faintness of this particular phase of the light curve. We suggest that the presence of this drop could be used as a physical parameter to distinguish between subclasses of SNe II, rather than their light-curve decline rate shortly after peak. Close inspection of the spectra of SN 2013by indicate asymmetric line profiles and signatures of high-velocity hydrogen. Late (∼90d after explosion) near-infrared spectra of SN 2013by exhibit oxygen lines, indicating significant mixing within the ejecta. From the late-time light curve, we estimate that 0.029 M of 56Ni was synthesized during the explosion. It is also shown that the V-band light-curve slope is responsible for part of the scatter in the luminosity (V magnitude 50d after explosion) versus 56Ni relation. Our observations of SN 2013by and other SNe IIL through the onset of the nebular phase indicate that their progenitors are similar to those of SNe IIP. Description: Photometric monitoring in BVgri of SN 2013by with the LCOGT 1 m telescope network began on 2013 April 24 (UT), and continued every two to three nights (52 epochs of data were collected) for more than 150 d, well after the light curve settled on to the 56Co decay tail. Additional imaging was obtained from Swift and the CSP. The CSP obtained 17 epochs of science images using the SITe3 CCD camera along with a set of ugriBV filters attached to the Swope 1 m telescope located at Las Campanas Observatory (LCO).
