I had the same question, so I looked it up in "The World of Irises" 
and Kohlein's "Iris".  Both references gave it as a species fitting 
in the MTB class in growth habits.  I suspect Kohlein got that 
classification from TWOI, though.  Kohlein also says some consider 
it a variant of I. variegata and further states it is for collectors 

When such a statement as the last is made, I wish there were more 
clarification to justify the remark.  I suppose somewhere in his 
book he may define what 'only for a collector' entails, but it long 
since went by the wayside if I ever read it.

Frankly, I didn't find either tome had a lot of information.  That 
could be because it has never been widely grown.  The posted photo 
matches the description of the bloom very well - much better than is 
often the case.  So I would ask how it grows?  Is it difficult?  I 
found it interesting and attractive, but I wonder if it could take a 
Texas summer.  Kohlein listed it as originating from Macedonia, but 
TWOI had Yugoslavia.  Where Macedonia is geographically escapes me 
at the moment and I haven't tried to look it up.  I thought after a 
night's rest the memory would be there without going to the 
trouble.  Apparently not.

Great photo!  I'm glad it was posted.
