I take this to mean that PDG (Patrick De Geest) found the lower prime on 8th march(?) (may?) 2016 and ET (Edward Trice) found the next prime 10/2012 and it was verified by PDG 6th nov 2012.

if next and previous discoverer are the same person it's obvious what to do (use their name at the later date). Any suggestions for how to credit it when the record was found by two people?

Like in the example in your last post, they should both be credited. So, looks good to me (that's what the acronym stands for, right?)
Also, "maa" = maart = March, "mei" = May.
