    Chorizo, longaniza, salchicha no son diferentes clases de lo mismo, son cosas diferentes; en todo caso tal vez te refieres a embutidos, si así es el caso, sí, hay otros embutidos, por ejemplo: la moronga/morcilla (hecha de sangre de res); el salami y muchos otros embutidos están hechos de carne de puerco y se llaman diferente por el contenido. Es decir, la receta con la que se ha mezclado y preparado la carne que servirá de relleno.
