You are correct - - and that is why I wrote it up as:...... " Here is a luminata-plicata named .............."
LEGEND OF CAMELOT is a luminata-plicata.  I'm not sure that I can explain this as correctly or as thoroughly as a geneticist, but I'll give it a try. This is an iris that A.) exhibits both the luminata genes which are showing up as the typical white veining in the falls/ or what some may call white background falls with a color wash on the second petal layer exposing the veining; along with B.) the plicata markings/or colored veining around or near the beard and throat area (as well as sometimes on the rims).
There also exists ringed/or rimmed luminata plicatas. I hope this helps.

Margie, I'm pretty sure that isn't a luminata - my understanding is that
the characteristic of luminatas is that they do <not> have pigmented
veins in the throat - those purple veins mean it is not luminata.
