In the book "409 Selected Composition of Karol Mlynka" by Gabriel Török (available online), Pos. no. 41, it is mentioned besides the changed mates also a reciprocal change of defense motivs in the try (Rh6+ checking, Be5 pinning) and the solution (Rh6 pinning, Be5+ checking). Changed mates also with the set play 1.. Rh6, Rxf4 2. Nf5#, Qe1#.

Shown are changed mates in the try 1. Qg5? f2! and the solution. The key threatens 2. Qf4#, but not 1. Rxf6? Be5+! On 1.. Rh6, Be5+ the black piece is captured with mate by Q or R. On 1.. RxR 2. NxR#.
