Leftcoms are the left wing of communism, while Marxist–Leninists and social democrats are the right wing of communism.

They're basically orthodox Marxists and see ML/MLMs as revisionists.

MLs and MLMs see Lenin, Stalin and Mao as being just as valuable as Marx/Engels, while leftcoms don't think Marxism needs any addendums.

They reject Lenin's state capitalism / state socialism and party vanguardism, as well as his democratic centralism (where decisions reached by voting processes are binding upon all members of the party).

You and me both. I'm not sure there is one.

as far as I can tell left-communists are communists that are neither tankies nor anarchists, called that because they were considered to be to the left of lenin & the bolsheviks

beyond that I'm not really sure either
