Well that is not quite correct.

It is not a matter of "cleaning up", it is a matter of keeping a complete record of what has happened.

Many names are released by the registrant. The original entry in the database is not deleted.

When  a name is released it goes back in the category of available names. In this case it appears that Mary Dunn kept the name Graphique (through the name reservation process).

What IS confusing is that the entry that releases the name in 1993 also lists HM 1998. How did an iris that was destroyed in 1993 get an HM in 1998.

Questions like the original one and mine about the HM should really be addressed to the Registrar for an accurate answer. Mike Lowe is the Registrar (aisregistrar@irises.org) and is more than willing to answer questions.

I will ask my question and report back.

Hello BJ

Sometimes it happens, on the registry, that they haven't cleaned up after making a correction.

If you click on one of the 4 occurences of Graphique, you can find this:


    (Mary Dunn, TB, R. 1982), , , 
    "Stock destroyed, name released 1993. HM 1998""
      It means it's the most reacent registration that is the good one!

    Good morning, everyone.

    I am updating my database and have come upon a wee problem. Last year I 
    obtained an iris called Graphique by Mary Dunn. Here's the problem, the 
    iris register lists it twice with the following information:

    (M. Dunn, R. 1982), Sdlg. M75-531-A. TB, 36" (91 cm), M
    "S. white ground, heavily marked near black; F. white ground with narrow 
    near black band; violet beard. Going My Way X Midway. HM 1998"
    (Mary Dunn, R. 1993), Sdlg. M84-885T. TB, 36" (91 cm), M
    "S. white ground, wide deep violet band, tiny plicata markings in 
    center, violet midrib; F. white, narrow deep violet edge; beards violet, 
    tipped light yellow. M75-531: (Going My Way x Midway) X Momentum. MAD 
    Iris 1994 HM 1998"

    Sounds like the same one but which is correct? 1982 or 1993? Any and 
    all help appreciated.

    A bit confused, I am....
