In this example, the spot contains yellow pigment, that is not present
elsewhere (except for some in beard), and the whole flower has
anthocyanin. This can often be the case with black or dark red spot on
purple or violet flowers. In these cases there would seem to no more
anthocyanin in spot then elsewhere in the flower.

The purple spot on a white flower would have anthocyanin and cartenoid
in spot. You can have a spot with only anthocyanin, such as Ajaks the
Less, and Boo.These have nice blue spots.

Wow - neat picture, Chuck. Sure does show the yellow spot.

But is there also a blue (purple) spot, in this or other pumilas? Or

just the yellow layer that makes the spot darker in blue selfs?
