I agree, absolutely.  That's why I think the photo list does well 
when it says what something isn't.  I have several that I posted 
without realizing they were wrong.  Having the mis-identification 
pointed has kept me from distributing further under a mistaken ID.  
One is so close that it may even be correct, but doubt keeps it from 
going out under the name it was sold under.  As for a positive ID, I 
suppose I might have an AB at some point that I wanted to be sure 
enough to acquire and grow another side by side to see if I could 
ascertain if I had a correct cultivar.  But I'm skeptical even on 
doing that.  If a misnamed iris gets distributed widely enough under 
the wrong name, then the comparison might match and it still be a 
mistaken identity.  I think the older iris may have this problem 
more than recent intros, but it's a scenario that I fear is more 
plausible than we'd like.  After all, one commercial distributor 
unknowingly distributing a misnamed cultivar over several seasons 
and those acquiring it sharing and trading under the wrong name is 
all it would take.  It probably would take years, if ever, to get it 
straightened out.  So I think this forum is good for raising 
questions on IDs.  Sometimes one just doesn't know what they think 
they know.  I personally like to know of the mistake so I don't 
perpetuate it further.
