ISO guide to culinary differences in varieties of pumpkin and winter squash

I haven't had any success googling for this - too many results, nothing comprehensive. What I'd like to find is a listing, with photos, of various varieties along with their characteristics. NOT recipes, just what they are best used for. E.g., "this variety has a tough skin with sweet, dense flesh", "this variety has watery, mild-flavored flesh".....

I was at a local farmstand where they had many visually interesting cucurbitae but no one there knew the culinary differences, so I fought the temptation to buy the "peanut pumpkin" and others.
