Ingenious Zilahi! Nice Transferred mate similarities!

2. Kjell Widlert says:

There’s a very clear correspondence between the two pairs of solutions, just as there ideally should be in an HOTF problem. One or the other Leo can mate on d8 or h7, after one or the other black pawn on the mating line has been eliminated (with the help of a sacrifice of the non-mating Leo).
