pentax k mount

I bought a tokina lens from ebay the sellar insists it is a k mount but it does not fit my K-X, have I gone mad is there any other type of mount or is he just mistaken.
quote from the seller
"Hi Steve, thanks for your message. It is definitely a Pentax K mount, as I took the lens directly off one of my own Chinons which has the original PK mount. I know for sure it will fit the original Pentax K and also the equally older KA."
thank you to averyone who reads this.
Steve

It probably has the extra large aperture flag guard. There are probably three or four JIS screws holding it on. You can remove it and grind the guard down to size or just leave it off.

I wonder if it's a M42 mount (which has threads).

I don't know what it is but it doesn't look like a K mount to me.
