The paper calls attention to the most symmetric interpenetration patterns of honeycomb layers. To the best of my knowledge, such patterns remained unknown so far. In my contribution a rigorous derivation of such patterns is given that makes use of a new approach to interpenetrating nets. The results are presented in a broad context of structural chemistry and crystal engineering.
