1939 Prodan

The World Checklist dismisses this as a synonym of iris variegata. Original description is Iris mangaliae Prodan, Fl. Dobrudscha Meeresk. Rum., ed. 2: 185 (1939).

noted in The Eupogon Iris in Cultivation as the following:

mangaliae Prod. E1. ed. II (1939): 185 = I. variegata L. var. pontica Prod., Bul. Grad. Bot. Cluj XIV, 1934. (6-I-37). Originally published as the latter, under which name it is known and grown in America, the name was changed because "pontica" was already taken at the species level. Hort. Class: STB, 2n=24.

„ Hans.: "This iris from the edge of the Black Sea is a little more robust than the typical variegata, a little taller, and very fertile. The color is a brownish yellow and not light yellow, and the veins are very dark Bordeaux brown. Tops for breeding dark brown variegatas. " Prodan: 11 The blade of the falls is described as having a brown spot near the tip below which are brown veins enclosing Sulphur yellow fields. The S. are light brown with darker veins, yellowish, with numerous brown veins toward the base. The style arms are brown (they are yellow in the type). " Rand. : There is a variant lacking yellow color in both S and F, and I also have a similar pale yellow form. " Of unidentified clones of I. variegata var. pontica a white, a lemon and a brown, as described above, have been generally distributed.
