And so the mystery becomes even more so. Interesting. Thank you.
As you say, it doesn't answer which picture is correct and for which iris? Romeo? Yellow standards or white? Is there a discription of Romeo anywhere?
Thank you again,

There has been some discussion of this way back in the early days of

real PFAUENUAGE ( G.u.K ,1906) is probably extinct and that which we
have all been growing under that name--which means "peacock's eye"--
is actually ROMEO (Millet, 1912).
Comparison of the photos in the article in ROOTS in which this instance
of the "usurper syndrome" is discussed show that ROMEO and
[fow-en-nwa-guh] are nearly identical. .........
The article in question is "Of Exotic Birds and Tragic Lovers", by Phil
the Fall 1993 issue of ROOTS.
