TB experts -- what do you call Sostenique's pattern?

(Lurkers, the checklist description is: apricot pink standards; light
veronica-violet falls deepening toward the edges; orange tangerine beard.)  

It's basically a bicolor but, in southern New Mexico's intense sun, the portion
of  the falls below the tip of the beard quickly fades to near-white. This is
the same spot where an arilbred signal appears and, so far, SOSTENIQUE has been
my most reliable TB parent for getting signals to come through on quarterbreds.
I think this may be attributed to some interaction between the two patterns.   

It is NOT a luminata -- doesn't pass the light hafts & style arms test.

It is NOT an aurata or halo pattern-- the blend is much too gradual, the lighter
area much too small, and its breeding characteristics don't match. 

But what is it?
