Abstract: To treat conservation of helicity in a quadrupolar model for a solar flare requires expressions for the self and mutual helicities of the reconnecting loops. Available formulas for the mutual helicity do not satisfy the requirement that they be symmetric in the interchange of the loops, and that the mutual helicity be proportional to the mutual inductance for force-free loops. The first step in a possible alternative derivation of the mutual helicity is outlined.
