CORRECTION: The plicata genes would be "pl plu pla pla", that is, one 
regular plicata gene, one luminata gene and two glaciata genes. When 
crossed to a glaciata such as Eramosa Snowball, would produce 1/2 
narrow rimmed plicatas and 1/2 stripped type plicatas. At times it 
would not be especially clear which is which.
 The ring would be passed on to 1/4 of the offspring. Assuming ring 
factor is only from one parent.
