Speeding Again attached.
John should have a canned "You can't identify irises from photographs." training session for all new people that has to be signed. I have been quiet so far so I guess it is my turn. It is rare when it is possible to identify an unknown on this robin. What the robin can do is give you a brief list of possibles. If you want to improve the odds about identity, you buy the most likely possibilities from a specialty iris nursery, plant them side by side to your unknown and when both bloom at the same time, compare torn apart standards and falls and beard in gory detail. IF everything matches exactly, you can safely call your unknown by the name of the possibility. The "known" may be incorrect but that's another story.

>If anyone can help me identify this TB I would be very happy to hear from you. 
If it is not City Lights, then it would have to be Speed Limit ('92 Lauer)
These are the only two iris that I know of in this color that have the
white thumbprint.
Lauer did have a newer one called Speeding Again '98
light purple, white central flash, but I don't know it enough to comment.
You could search the iris-photos archives for pictures of these to compare.
