I realize that the 1949 Check List says "(oncobred)" in C. G. White's 1941 entry, but is Sheriffa not from a regelia cross rather than oncocyclus?  From its appearance it suggests *Iris stolonifera* coloring.  If *stolonifera* is one of the parents the hybrid would be an arilbred, more specifically a "regeliabred."
It may be important to realize our current terminology dates from much later than 1941.  The language we use now to describe aril hybrids is quite recent in its development.
