The above specimen #1 was identified by Ron Silver.
The description was copied from Philibert Bidgrain's South-west Indian Ocean Flatworm site: "Background color variable, velvety bright red or red-orange, fushia-pink at margin with irregular white spots or clusters of dots over the entire surface. The white spots are more concentrated in a line along the margin and sometimes in irregular clusters longitudinally and medially."
The specimens #3 and #4 were misidentified and posted on 14 September 2012 at these websites as Pseudoceros cruentus  Newman & Cannon 1998. I realized my error when I was asking for an ID of the specimen #5, which was identified by Okan Akçay of the face book group Marine Flatworms and changed them on 27 February 2020 into Pseudoceros rubronanus  Newman & Cannon 1998.
