Re: Please help me identify this mount

"That's one thing I read about that concerned me, possible T2 mount. As far as I can tell the lens was not made in a T2 mount but measuring the pitch is easy enough to do."

There's some confusion here. "T2" isn't a mount that fits direct to a camera - it's another of the mounts I just mentioned that meant makers could build a generic lens and sell it into different SLR markets. The back of the lens has a T2 thread, and onto that, you need to add an actual mount, such as T2 to Nikon, or T2 to M42 - or whatever.  "YS" is the same idea, but with a different thread diameter and pitch.
