I would expect there might well be a dosage effect with your first example
more "plicata-ish" and your second leaning more to the luminata side.

Can't contribute much here, since I don't understand much about 'zonal'

CYCLES' parents are MIDWAY and VICTORIA FALLS. M has quite a bit of plicata
in its ancestry, though its description makes it sound more zonal in
appearance. VF, of course, is a zonal (though the "zone" is quite small)
and doesn't show any plicata in its ancestry that I am aware of. Therefore,
the probability is very strong that CYCLES is a zonal and not a luminata
(the chance it could have inherited a combination of two luminata and/or
glaciata alleles from VF is vanishingly slim).
