If my memory has not led me astray, I believe that Andrew Field queried VN about "Nikto b" and Botkin, but VN denied the connection. I think this is in some correspondence that survives in the Berg collection. Does anyone else recall this? That said, I don't think we should feel obliged to believe VN's denials and/or explanations. There have been other cases (skoramis, for example) where VN's gloss turned out to be misleading.
