In my earlier post I got the naming on the type of twin incorrect, it
shouldn't have been identical. I was trying to explain that aspect in the
second paragraph. My mistake.

I assume the mitochondrial differences are due to nucleus swapping,
different line of extra-nuclear heritage?

       To know what is right and not to do it is the worst cowardice.
