■ (Spec) Iris klattii Kem.-Nath.
(Liubov Manucharovna Kemularia-Nathadze
, 1951), Section Limniris
, Series Spuriae
; Klatt described it as Iris violaceae
in Grossheim, Opr. Rast. Kauk. 635 (1949); but that name had already been used for a different Iris so it was changed to Iris klattii
by Kemul.-Nath. in Not. Syst. Geogr.Inst. Bot. Tphilis., Fasc. 16, 4 (1951). Some authors today recognize it only as a variation under Iris spuria subspecies musulmanica
. Breeding experiments have shown it to behave quite different from that iris and some distinctive characteristics such as red pollen suggest it is a distinct entity but the rank has yet to be settled.
