PESSTO, the Public ESO Spectroscopic Survey for Transient Objects (see Valenti et al., ATel #4037; http://www.pessto.org ), reports the following supernova classifications. Targets were supplied by the La Silla-Quest survey (see Hadjiyska et al., ATel #3812). All observations were performed on the ESO New Technology Telescope at La Silla on 2014 Feb 07 UT, 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 can be obtained from http://www.pessto.org (via WISeREP).

LSQ14rl | 10:00:25.97 | +03:22:52.8 | 20140204 | LSQ | 21.2 | 0.00686 | II | + few months | (1) LSQ14pt | 12:46:21.37 | -20:24:49.2 | 20140201 | LSQ | 19.5 | 0.059 | IIn | pre-max | (2) LSQ14nr | 11:48:43.97 | -17:55:43.2 | 20140201 | LSQ | 18.8 | 0.091 | Ia | max | (3)

(1) Nebular spectrum with fairly narrow (~2000 km/s) H-alpha and H-beta, [CaII] 7291,7323 A, Ca II 8542,8662 A and weak [O I] 6300,6364 A. This likely corresponds to CBAT PSN J10002592+0322530; http://www.cbat.eps.harvard.edu/unconf/followups/J10002592+0322530.html
(2) Narrow Balmer lines superimposed on a broader base with H-alpha P-Cygni absorption minimum at ~2500 km/s. SNID favors 2005gj at -12d, but secure classification of CSM-interacting SNe is difficult (see Leloudas et al. 2013, arXiv1306.1549L)
(3) Redshift and phase obtained with SNID.
