Just for fun, what might they recognize among irises?

Among Siberians, would it make sense to recognize the
28-chromosome, "robust" set as one species and the
40-chromosome, "gracile" set as another?  That would
correspond to what Lenz called the subseries level,
but Mathews doesn't seem to talk about subseries.

level seems like a helpful one, whatever it's called.
I'd like to see how it applies to the beardeds.
