The specimen #3was identified by the late Leslie J. Newman on the Dr.Wolfgang Seifarth's website 'Marine Flatworms of the World!,
Dr.Leslie J. Newman passed away in September 2015, RIP!
Let me quote the South-west Indian Ocean Flatworm site:
"Remarks : Leslie Newman thinks there's a real confusion between Pseudoceros zebra, P. scintillatus and P. imperatus. It is possible that they all form a single species. DNA studies needed to determine relationship between these 'three species'. "
