Miniature. A twin problem with b) bKe7->b7 and two solutions that show chameleon echo mates. The mates on 1.. Kd8 2. Bf6# or b) 1.. Kc8 2. Ba6# are model mates. Listed as No. 21 in the book "409 Selected Chess Compositions of Karol Mlynka" by Gabriel Török (available online) with the comment "Radical change, model mates, chameleon echo, Z-22-44."

For information on the composer see the entry from 4 days ago.
