Abstract: We suggest a method to detect that two periodic knots are not equivariantly concordant, using surgery on factor links. We construct examples which satisfy all known necessary conditions for equivariant slice knots- Naik's and Choi-Ko-Song's improvements of classical results on Seifert forms and Casson-Gordon invariants of slice knots - but are not equivariantly slice.
