■ (SPEC) Iris pariensis Welsh

1986, Welsh

Iris pariensis (Stanley L. Welsh, 1986) Described in the Great Basin Naturalist (1986); considered a synonym of Iris missouriensis by The World Checklist. The only specimen known is one herbarium sheet. They lack of information makes this iris somewhat of a mystery. You be the judge, missouriensis or a separate species?
