Hi Mickey, An oncobred (OB) usually is from a cross between and oncocyclus and a non- aril. An OGB usually is a cross between an oncyocyclus-regelia hybrid and a non aril. Yes I would be happy to receive what ever combinations you have and before I use them I try to check them against the AIS and ASI descriptions. If there is a doubt then they are stored in directory just for that purpose and not used until confirmed in some way. Thank you again.

  I regret to say, this was during the period my iris identification began to
  get jumbled.  These are the only other slides I was able to identify at
  that time:

  Caroline Jane
  Golden Eagle
  Moonlit Sea
  Mulberry Rose
  New Snow
  Radient (maybe)
  Sheriffa (maybe)
  White Spire

  Wm. Mohr was considered an 'oncobred' back then.  I don't know the
  difference between oncobred and arils/arilbreds.  The only one of the above
  that is oncabred is Sheriffa.  This was identified in 1969.  It resembles 
  the catalog picture I have of Sheriffa but it  does not fit the catalog
  description which was:

  SHERIFFA (White '42) Metallic violet blossoms with a blaze of blue on the
  falls.  The petals are darker around the edge & burnished with a metallic
  lighter shade on the center - oncobred - M/36"

  This description doesn't fit the catalog picture I have either.  The
  catalog picture shows the center of the falls with a blaze of purple (not
  blue) spot on them and the outer edges are lighter.  If you would like a
  scan of that I will send it to you.

  >Hi Mickey, Do have a list of the contents of your 40 year photo archive?
  There might be some arils and arilbreds I could use for the ASI Checklist=
