G.     G portentosa de 45 à 88cm
  G. picea de 53 à 85cm 
          Elliptorhina chopardi  36 à 44cm
    E. brunneri  35 à 47cm
   E. javanica  35 à 50cm

I have a feeling they meant to write "mm", instead of "cm"! :lol:

I think its probably the Wide Horn Hissers are the longest and heaviest of all the hisser species, although I've seen and had quiet a few common hissers (portentosa) females push nearly the size of the wide horns. 

I'd love to get my hands on some vanwaerebeki, but seems there's not any for sale in the years I've been searching.
