what kind of mount is this?

Found this Vivitar lens but don't recognize the mount and was wondering
if anyone can identify it for me?

Thanks in advance to all fellow Pentaxians!

It looks like Konica/Minolta. I have an old lens I bought since it said K on it (which was actually K for Konica not Pentax-K mount) that looks identical. They sort-of mount on K-mount but won't lock in place.

It's Minolta MC bayonet. No it can not be used on Pentax. Even with adapters. I've never seen them with a lever. It could be a meter indexing tab? Just a guess.

Vivitar 85-205

Thanks to all who have helped me identify the mount on this lens.
I guess I'll try to take it apart for the fun of it as it will not work this way.

I may be wront, but isn't that lever for actuating the aperture diaphragm? If I remember correctly, the aperture always remained stopped down to whatever was slected by the ring by spring action, and the camera opened it up wide by a lever, which it would release during 1. exposure or 2.
