surely not Chili Pepper???

How can an apricot and blue iris with red beard (the photo) be what is
described in the R&I??  Oxblood is very dark brownish red, plus there is
no white ground showing - R&I sounds like a typical dark red plicata,
surely not the same as in your photo, which has a very red orange beard,
not at all bronze.

Has Lorraine seen the R&I for it?

This sounds like another Chet Tompkins description!
