They're the true species.  Iris tridentata isn't known to hybridize with
other species, in part because it blooms in July when most other species
bloom in May & June.

And this particular Iris fulva is in the trade in USA as "fulva dwarf".  It
is very short, but otherwise completely typical of the species.  I don't
have the provenance of its heritage, though.

The only wild (beardless) Iris in my collection that I have provenance for
is my Iris brevicaulis because it came from a wild population about 15
miles away from my home.
