ePESSTO, the extended Public ESO Spectroscopic Survey for Transient Objects (see Smartt et al. 2015, A&A, 579, 40 http://www.pessto.org ), reports the following supernova classifications. Targets were supplied by the SkyMapper survey (Scalzo et al. ATel #5480), the OGLE-IV Real-time Transient Search (Wyrzykowski et al., 2014 arxiv:1409.1095; http://ogle.astrouw.edu.pl/ ), the ESA Gaia Photometric Science Alerts Team and DPAC (http://gsaweb.ast.cam.ac.uk/alerts) and the ATLAS survey, see Tonry et al. (2011, PASP, 123, 58) and Tonry et al. (ATel #8680). All observations were performed on the ESO New Technology Telescope at La Silla on 2017 Sept. 10, using EFOSC2 and Grism 13 (3985-9315A, 18A resolution). Classifications were done with SNID (Blondin & Tonry, 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024) and GELATO (Harutyunyan et al., 2008, A&A, 488, 383). Classification spectra and additional details can be obtained from http://www.pessto.org (via WISeREP) and the IAU Transient Name Server.

(1) Not visible on acquisition image.
(2) Offset from nucleus of host galaxy, transient shows a blue continuum, featureless apart from narrow (unresolved) Halpha emission at z=0.06.
(3) Spectrum dominated by narrow Balmer, O emission lines. Blue continuum below ~5000 Ang.
(4) Also found by MASTER as MASTERJ003404.53-103337.9 (ATel #10688). Matches to 91T-like SNe.
(5) Narrow Halpha is likely associated with host, as the transient lies in the galaxy nucleus.
