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 are from the OGLE-IV Real-time Transient Search (Wyrzykowski et al., 2014 arxiv:1409.1095; http://ogle.astrouw.edu.pl/ ) and the All Sky Automated Survey for SuperNovae ASAS-SN (see Shappee et al. 2014, ApJ, 788, 48 and http://www.astronomy.ohio-state.edu/~assassin/index.shtml ). All observations were performed on the ESO New Technology Telescope at La Silla on 2018 Feb 6, 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) SN2018ht was observed as part of the GREAT survey (Chen et al. ATel #10510), having a black body temperature of T_BB > 7000 K obtained from the photometry taken on 2018 January 31 with griz=19.84,19.61,19.56,19.63 mag using GROND zero points. Redshift determined from host galaxy lines. Photometry from the OGLE survey suggest a long rise time of >40 days with a peak around 20 days ago. The determined redshift implies a SN absolute magnitude of brighter than -19. Both of these observations suggest an unusual type II SN.
(2) Redshift from host galaxy.
