THANK YOU, Jean,
Yes, that does look like the name I remember hearing several years ago. I knew the Pf didn't seem like French but I never thought about German.
Now - the next problem. Two people have posted two very different pictures of Peacock's Eye. The falls are very similiar but the standards are not. One has yellow standards and the other white or cream with a thin yellow band. I remember mine as the second one. What do you think?
Thank you again, Jan

The real name, I believe, is Pfauenauge. It's German.

with me at the moment)
The big question is - how do you tell Pfauenauge and Romeo apart?
