With Author's and Editor's permission. - 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?
