This text replaces Atel #6523 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 (Baltay et al. 2013, PASP, 125, 683), OGLE-IV Real-time Transient Search (Wyrzykowski et al., 2014 arxiv:1409.1095; http://ogle.astrouw.edu.pl/ ) and from CRTS (http://crts.caltech.edu/) All observations were performed on the ESO New Technology Telescope at La Silla on 2014 Sep 30 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).

Notes: (1) Some reasonable matches to 91T-like SNe. Estimated absolute magnitude of the SN is -19.73. (2) Probably type Ic super-luminous SN , blue continuum, reasonable match with PTF09atu (Quimby et al. 2011. Nat, 474, 487) (3) Probable IIn in host galaxy core. But could be AGN variability
