Default mappedPatch for two fluid regions

Vesposo is on a distinguished road

I want to simulate two fluid regions which should be coupled with a mappedPatch. The reason is that I want two simulate the different regions with different turbulentModels (RANS and LES).
If I set up my boundary files of the two regions with:

        type            mappedPatch;
        sampleMode      nearestPatchFace;
        sampleRegion    fluidRANS; // respectively fluidLES for the other region
        samplePatch     oldInternalFaces;
        nFaces          176;
        startFace       61548;
and for my boundary condition (i.e. U):

        type            mapped;
        setAverage      false;
        average         (0 0 0);
        value           uniform (0 0 0);
I get the error:

    request for volScalarField mut from objectRegistry fluidLES failed
    available objects of type volScalarField are
Any hints? Thank you.
