Sorry to hear that you received a mis-named iris from the CIS auction. Mistakes
do sometimes happen. However it bothers me very much when this happens and when
an iris is misnamed. If you peruse the listing from the 97 silent auction you
should be able to narrow down the name of the iris you did receive as it no
doubt is among those.
