Nice pictures of irises there. I would think that all three of them resemble 'Superstition' more than 'Study in Black'. I recall 'Study in Black' to be more tailored than your photos show, and also it has no faint white striations next to the beard.
I do not grow it, myself. Our show is in two weeks, and if I see it there on display from any of our club members, I could request a rhizome of it for you to compare, if you'd like. :-)
How is 'Codicil' doing for you? :-)

Does anyone grow both Study in Black and Superstition? I obtained S.in B. from HIPS two years ago, but when it bloomed it looked just like Superstition.
Any thoughts on ID?
