We report the following classifications of optical transients from spectroscopic observations with KOSMOS on the KPNO Mayall 4-m telescope. Targets were supplied by the Pan-STARRS Survey for Transients (PSST) and Gaia. Observations were made on 2017 June 29 UT. Classifications were performed with SNID (Blondin & Tonry, 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024).

When the redshift is given to 2 decimal places, it is derived from the SN spectrum. Otherwise, the redshift is determined from the host galaxy.
