simple answer
How do I tell if two living or fossil species are the same "kind", or belong to two different "kinds"?

Easy.

If there is a definite undeniable evolutionary link between the two species then it is clearly change within a kind.

If there is no such link then it is two different kinds as it would take a "macro"evolutionary change to get from {A} to {B}.
