Well then, your case is made - they are part of a beautifully pictured
collection - and they are sure NOT TBs, look like the shape  of any
Japanese Iris I've ever seen - have no experience with Japanese -
are they also registered? Could we track down what their real names are and
get the record set straight?  If there isn't a registration process for
Japanese - would there be no enforceable remedy to prohibit anyone calling
them whatever they wish?  The collection includes Olympic Challenge and
Immortality reblooming, Silver edge, White Swirl and
Butter and Sugar Siberians, Zebra - 15 bulbs for $29.95, so the myth will
be perpetuated by the gazillions who can not resist and will purchase
because they are absolutely beautiful....and modestly priced.
