Thank you. All info is welcome. Arilbred Median makes sense. But Arilmed would do as a shortcut - like TB, IB, MTB, etc. it could be ABM or AM. The important distinction, I guess, is between Aril and Arilbred.

As far as I know, there has never been an official designation and acceptance of the term
"arilmedian." The Aril Society International yearbook for 2005, in its Glossary in the back, gives: "Arilbred Median. A small arilbred whose bearded forebears included dwarf species." I have read where some people classed any short arilbred as an arilmedian. In my mind, I use arilmedian to mean that the iris refers to a seedling that came from the cross of a pure aril or an arilbred and an iris that is officially classed by AIS as a median. I also believe it has to fit into the size ranges for medians, too, as one can get a very tall arilbred from such a cross. I use the term in an unofficial way, of course, as I recently named and registered a little arilbred, and ASI gave it an OGB- classification (oncogeliabred). Another unofficial term some of us use is "stol-pum" to keep track of a dwarf arilbred that is a cross of the aril (regelia) I. stolonifera x I. pumila.
