Excelsior and Valladao = Keym-task (Author)
Anti Circe: After a capture the capturing piece (Ks included) must immediately be removed to its game array square (necessarily vacant, else the capture is illegal). R, B & S go to the square of the same colour as the capture; Ps stay on the file of capture; fairy pieces go to the promotion square of the file of capture.

As far as I know, Keym-task = Excelsior + Valladao + AUW

You are right
Keym-task = Excelsior + Valladao + AUW
