The pattern has a lot of varience as it exists.  Bold lines in 
contrasting colors to ghostly lines in a slightly different hue of 
the same color.  In the old RED BUTTERFLY, the lines start at the 
haft and are very well defined in the shoulder area.  As those veins 
extend down the falls they get broader and the vein color starts 
escaping on to the ground color.  By the time they reach the bottom 
of the falls the vein color has escaped the veins and pool into a mix 
of the vein color and forms a sort of band of mottled red blending 
together around the edge of the falls.  If there are the equivalent 
in modern form, I'm not aware of them.  I would think there were a 
lot of possibilities for the pattern in an updated form, especially 
considering the number of blends that have put in an appearance since 
the time the original 'butterfly pattern' types were being 
introduced.  Then there is Sutton's CIRCUS CIRCUS that seems to be 
the plicata pattern going up from the edge of the falls covering the 
falls with veins - just the opposite of the shoulder veins extending 
down.  More possibilites there, I would think.
