Dear Don,

Looked at the pics and I am sorry to say that this must be a virus.
Especially the deformed tissues associated with the variegation indicate
this. I have had a similar viral attack in one of my A. atroviridis, that
mysteriously was gone next season, and then re-appeared again but in a
milder expression. Beats me how them viruses work. They are not from this
planet anyway.............

And yes, this is indeed a muelleri.
