Ok I might be wrong so get other answers too.

1. G. oblongonata or P. vanwieribeki (spelling? Sorry I'm on my phone can't look it up)

2. E. javanica (halloween hissers)

3. G. grandidieri and G. portentosa

4. E. javanica

5. E. javanica, although I like the red on the A. insignis too

Thanks for the help it was interesting to learn more about hisser's and the ones you mentioned really are amazing!

I have kind of a noobish question though. Being not all hisser's have the first same name, like G, P, and E, not sure if it's called species or genus, does that mean they all are not related unless first letter is the same, (able to hybridize) or are they just all morphs from the typical hisser's we know and can all crossbreed with eachother if they are related?
