- Comment by J. Proszynski: interpretation of the species
is done arbitrarily on the basis of assumption that Logunov's specimens must
be identical with the lost original types from a distant locality, because
of alleged environment similarity. The assumption may be right, but is it?
Epigynum is rather special but shoving extensive variation
of it (figs 95, 97) Logunov does not provide documentation of internal structure
of so different forms, so do they belong to the same species?
