Part of what I'm hoping to do with my series of articles is to give a 
better understanding of the plicata patterns and their variations as 
well as connect them to their genotypes, which should help with 
breeding. I'm not exactly sure what Paul means by the "pumilla spot 
plic" although I have a suspicion. The others are known variations on 
plicata. Sometimes the only thing you have are very light markings 
around the haft as on Laced Cotton, or plicata markings on   only the 
hafts. There are the stripped and heavily streaked variations. I have 
posted a couple of pictures on iris-photo to help clarify the veined 
and streaked patterns. I try to put my best guess of genotype with the 
photos to help out.

There are a few surprises to come. I think that I have identified a 
few plicata patterns that have been puzzling to people but so far 
don't seem to have been identified as plicata.

I'm not aware of anyone else who has been brave (or foolish) enough to 
try putting a genotype to the various patterns. This at least will 
give the information to start making predictions and Punnett square 
outcomes which can give us test crosses. Even if drastically wrong, 
should hopefully give enough information to better understand the 
genetics involed.
