NEW IRIS FOUND  ?   

    A mysterious iris found in NE India, the Eastern Aranachal Pradeshat about 9,500'. Photos taken June 2009 by Pete Boardman of the United Kingdom. This was found on an eastern facing, steep hillside in a clearing surrounded by rhododendron and trees to about 25'. Unfortunately it was too early for seeds and no plants were collected

    Anyone recognize this iris? Obviously it has an affinity to I. tectorum  and I. milesii. Could this be a new species?
