RLMException: Object type does not match RLMArray type

I have a simple object:

class MyObject : Object {
dynamic var dummyField: String!;

and another object which inherits from

class MyOtherObject : MyObject {
dynamic var anotherDummyField: String!;

Now I do the following. I have a Realm List of
and I create an instance of
and try to save it inside the list:

class Operator {
internal var myObjects: List<MyObject>!;

internal var myObject: MyObject!;

func operate() {
self.myObject = MyOtherObject();
self.myObject.dummyField = "dummy field";
self.myObject.anotherDummyField = "another dummy field";

self.myObjects = List<MyObject>();
self.myObjects.append(myObject); // crash!

It crashes with the error:

Terminating app due to uncaught exception 'RLMException', reason: 'Object type 'MyOtherObject' does not match RLMArray type 'MyObject'.'

is a subclass of
I cannot understand why the app is crashing at this point with this error message.


Realm Lists are not covarient. You can only store objects of exactly the declared type in them.
