Hi Chuck
I thank you for the advices, I had already noticed that the yellow background exalts the stripes !
In fact crossing Sriped Butterfly with a intense yellow TB (not plicata but plicata parent) I obtained this one that  induced me to develop the stripes.
    Striped Butterfly X (Rippling Waters x Wild Ginger)
His grandson , that  temporary I named Nuovi Orizzonti (New Horizons), of which I attach a most corresponding photo, is undoubtedly a plicata, but I think that the strong stripes in throat have inherited from Striped Butterfly or back from the parent of SB : Butterfly Wings, historical iris by G.B.White.
    Nuovi Orizzonti
I too crossed Butterfly Wings with plicatas obtaining stripes always :
 (B W x Focus) X Queen in Calico
I already crossed Nuovi Orizzonti with Owee Desert and,following your advices, with Corolla (hybrid by my friend Augusto Bianco) and with my GK02:(Kilt Lilt X Queen in Calico).
I think in future to direct the crosses with the ringed plicatas and with the striped like Louis d'Or and Goldkist.
    Owee Desert
        Corolla                                                                            GK02:(Kilt Lilt X Queen in Calico)
Thanks again.

This is basically a stripped plicata , such as Circus Stripes or
Autunm Circus, on an intense yellow ground. I had predicted this
colour pattern during my talk on plicata genetics at this years
Oklahoma Pollen Dobbers seminar. To continue this pattern you need to
select plicata parents with intense yellow ground. The intense yellow
seems to be recessive and can disapear quickly in crosses if not
selected for, Similar colour pattern exsist with Internal Fire and
Burst. Possible parent partners are Hot Chocolate, Glitz n'Glitter,
Burst, Los Coyotes. Broadway, and Light Beam are also possible choices
of parents.
Good luck on developing this.
