Right now, this is as close as I can get to posting photos.  Here are some links to some Iris that have the "look" of the original tetraploid species, several are perhaps "pure" for wild tet. TB genes, but not all of them.  These are at the HIPS web site:
Blue Rhythm (This is several generations away from wild species in a line that appears to be selected for blue color; however, a quick check through ancestry shows a lot of influence from the TB tetraploid "species" even in the documented parts.)
another, perhaps a few generations closer to "wild" is 'Missouri'
Buechley Giant
I. trojana
Lent. A. Williamson
Morocco Rose
If you look at the Shadowood web site, Laurie has an unknown #52 that really looks like one of these too.
There are quite a number of others for which I haven't been able to find photos yet.
Another "species" for which I couldn't find much information, which seems to be a tetraploid TB is I. skamnilii.
