Hello Walter,

Yes, I think you're correct.  They are different ways of approaching 
the same question.  The parentage of LIGHTS OF ARABIA, though, is 
far to complex for me to make even an uneducated guess.  LOA is the 
end result of a skillful hybridizer and some parents are listed by 
seedling number only; others as involving a long list of pure 
arils.  I can, in a limited way, justify what I see in TB seedlings 
based on the parents, but arilbreds are more difficult even when the 
ancestry isn't as complicated.
