Hello! I try to find the correct synonym for the sentence "according to" because I want to avoid a repetition. Tell please is it possible to write "under the one's variant" in this context, as I did in the text:

According to a Nenets version it is a black or water beetle named si, or its larva – puy, under the Khants variant it is a gold or water beetle.

May I write also: pursuant to one's mythological views?

Note: Nenets and Khants are native people.

    According to a Nenets version it is a black or water beetle named si, or its larva – puy; in under the Khants variant it is a gold or water beetle.
    I'm assuming the term 'variants' refers to folk tales, WB.

    You'll need to ask your second question in a separate thread, with a full sentence and (preferably) a bit more context than you've given in this question:)
