<b>You can't impersonate others or provide inaccurate information.</b> <br> You don't have to disclose your identity on Instagram, but you must provide us with accurate and up to date information (including registration information). Also, you may not impersonate someone you aren't, and you can't create an account for someone else unless you have their express permission.
While pseudonyms are allowed, impersonation and/or 'innacurate' information may result in a Guidelines breach. Still, it's up for debate.

changes-requested: Instagram does not force users to use their real names, pseudonyms are allowed. Suggesting case-switch to https://edit.tosdr.org/cases/144 as there doesn't seem to be a case for this quote. You could put the details of it on the title or the analysis.

The Case you link specifies about external Rules/Terms appliccable, not alternative rulings. Also, I'd argue the use of pseudonyms is very strict since they're mentioning not to impersonate.
