Dear PBSers,

	I think this name is  multiply confused. I may be making a stretch, but I think Angelo made a typo for Iris collina. However this is also an invalid name. Various authorities consider I collina  either a synonym of I sintenisii, others as a synonym of Gynandriris (Morea?) sisyrinchium. The literature is very mixed.

	Iris sintenisii is already quite mixed up in the trade where a number of quite distinct species are given this name. 

	Ultimately it is up to Angelo to clear this up maybe with a picture. 			Caveat emptor?		Best		Jim W.
