Left: Excess dielectron $p_{\rm T,ee}^{\rm 2}$-differential yields after subtraction of the cocktail of known hadronic decay contributions in peripheral (70--90\%) Pb--Pb collisions at \fivenn for different \mee ranges, i.e.\ 0.4~$\leq$~\mee~$$~0.7~\GeVmass, 0.7~$\leq$~\mee~$$~1.1~\GeVmass and 1.1~$\leq$~\mee~$$~2.7~\GeVmass, compared with calculations for coherent photon--photon production of dielectrons folded with the detector resolution\,. Right: Excess dielectron $p_{\rm T,ee}^{\rm 2}$-differential yields after subtraction of the cocktail of known hadronic decay contributions in peripheral Pb--Pb (70--90\%), Au--Au (60--80\%) and U--U (60--80\%) collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}$ $=$ 5.02, 0.2 and 0.193\,TeV\,, respectively, in a similar \mee range. The error bars and boxes represent the statistical and systematic uncertainties of the data, respectively. Arrows indicate upper limits at 90\% confidence level.
