Russian Regiments which According to Höglund's Book Participated in the Battle of Poltava

I have in my presentation of the Russian regiments' uniforms in the battle of Poltava mainly used an order of battle from Bertil Wennerholm's book "Emporterade troféer". But there are apparently several different variants of the Russian battle order since Lars-Eric Höglund's book "Stora nordiska kriget 1700-1721, III") mention an additional 16 regiments as participants in the battle. I do not know however where to put these in the Russian OOB). In any way the uniforms for these 16 additional Poltava regiments are presented on this page.

The only clue I have to their whereabouts is that Valery Moltusov mention that the Russian baggage train further north to Rubljovka was guarded by at least one regiment.
