For me, I think that absolutely you have to compare Iris A to Iris B, 
bloom to bloom, to definitively say if they're the same.  The more we 
look, the more we see, and I'm sure very experienced people (e.g.
Phil Edinger!) can remember more detail than I can; but some of it is,
there is so much detail in an iris flower, we don't tend to put words 
on it all, and much of our memory is word-driven (not all, but a lot). 
 How far down on that style arm did the purply-lilac infusion go?  
Were the reticulations cream or beige?  and where did their color 

The neat thing is that we're all paying more attention to the details 
of the world, and I think (old hippie that I am) that's cosmic!
