PESSTO, the 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 OGLE-IV Real-time Transient Search (Wyrzykowski et al., 2014 arxiv:1409.1095; http://ogle.astrouw.edu.pl/ ), the ATLAS survey, see Tonry et al. (2011, PASP, 123, 58) and Tonry et al. (ATel #8680), the Catalina Real-time Transient Survey (CRTS; Drake et al. 2009, ApJ, 696, 870 ; http://crts.caltech.edu/ ) and the Pan-STARRS Survey for Transients (see Huber et al., ATel #7153). All observations were performed on the ESO New Technology Telescope at La Silla on 2016 Oct 20, using EFOSC2 and Grism 13 (3985-9315A, 18A resolution). Classifications were done with SNID (Blondin & Tonry, 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024), superfit (Howell and Wang, 2002, BAAS, 34, 1256) 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.
