Comments P. maximus is one of the most common polyclads around Madeira. It occurs in two variants (upper and lower panel) differing slightly in color pattern. The species can reach a size up to 4 cm. A closely related species (identical?) can be observed in Croatian waters (Adria, Mediterranean Sea).
