PESSTO, the Public ESO Spectroscopic Survey for Transient Objects (see Smartt et al., arXiv:1411.0299 http://www.pessto.org ), reports the following supernova classifications. Targets were supplied by the La Silla-Quest survey (see Baltay et al., PASP, 2013, 125, 683) and the IAU Transient Objects Confirmation Page (TOCP). All observations were performed on the ESO New Technology Telescope at La Silla on 2015-02-14, 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).
