Hi Mickey, An oncobred (OB) usually is from a cross between and oncocyclus and a non- aril. An OGB usually is a cross between an oncyocyclus-regelia hybrid and a non aril. Yes I would be happy to receive what ever combinations you have and before I use them I try to check them against the AIS and ASI descriptions. If there is a doubt then they are stored in directory just for that purpose and not used until confirmed in some way. Thank you again.

I regret to say, this was during the period my iris identification began to
get jumbled. These are the only other slides I was able to identify at
Wm. Mohr was considered an 'oncobred' back then. I don't know the
difference between oncobred and arils/arilbreds. The only one of the above
that is oncabred is Sheriffa. This was identified in 1969. It resembles
the catalog picture I have of Sheriffa but it does not fit the catalog
description which was:
SHERIFFA (White '42) Metallic violet blossoms with a blaze of blue on the
falls. The petals are darker around the edge & burnished with a metallic
lighter shade on the center - oncobred - M/36"
This description doesn't fit the catalog picture I have either. The
catalog picture shows the center of the falls with a blaze of purple (not
blue) spot on them and the outer edges are lighter. If you would like a
scan of that I will send it to you.

>Hi Mickey, Do have a list of the contents of your 40 year photo archive?
There might be some arils and arilbreds I could use for the ASI Checklist=
