Listed as No. 115 in the book "409 Selected Chess Compositions of Karol Mlynka" by Gabriel Török (available online) with the terse comment "Z-24-86." The wPd7 was added for the set mate 1.. Ne7 2. d8Q(R)#, further the set mate 1.. f4 2. Qxe4# is mentioned.

before my seeing comments: My solution [arrived to through the 32-pixel, B&W, restartable-moving-pieces setting and submitted in a style the honorable problemist was imitating on 2018-11-09 08:29:17]: to re-guard\pin south bishop or mate with queen after black-rook move [or to double-check\bishop\queen\north knight mate], white's qdone starts

Something on 1.. Nxa5 has to be found, so the key unpins bNe4 and pins bBd4 with the threat 2. Qb3#. Now on 1.. Nxa5, Ne5 simply 2. QxB#. Further variations are 1.. Nd6, Nc5, Nd2 2. R6e5#, Nc7#, Rxc6#. The mates 2. Nc7#, Rxc6# are transferred from the set on 1.. Bc5, Be5.

For information on the composer see yesterday's entry.
