My thanks too Peter, for the links. I'd better do something abouit them. Being an OAP now, many things have had to be put aside. Seeds, or plants, or subs, or books, or music. One or two maybe but not the lot.

The British Iris Society http://www.britishirissociety.org.uk/
The species Group is fairly autonomous and pretty sporadic It doesnt have a seperate web site as far as I know
The Aril Society International http://www.arilsociety.org/index.pl?Intro

Just received this message from Amazon:
"We have received new release date information related to the order you placed on June 03 2011 (Order# ...).
Please be advised that we have a revised delivery date for the items you ordered on June 03 2011 (Order #...).
 
  The Species Group of the British Iris Society, et al "A Guide to Species Irises: Their Identification and Cultivation"
    Estimated arrival date: February 10 2012 - February 15 2012
You have not yet been charged for this item. We do not debit money from your payment card until just before your items are dispatched"


which is a bit disappointing - especially as the Aussie dollar could be a lot worse against the GBP by then!
cheers

Pat , 'A Guide to Species Irises ' has been my Iris Bible too since 1997 . ,when it was up to date . There was no photo available then of I stocksii etc. -but it does feature photos of some more obscure species taken in the wild like: wendelboi, platytera, drepanophylla. microglossa , carterorum, tianschanica, polysticta, heweri.

It is not as scholarly written and illustrated with beautyful botanical paintings as R. Dykes 'The Genus Iris' 1913 ( which I treasure ) but it is still very good .

 How fortunate we are to have such good photos of Iris stocksii in the Forum and in the IRG, heh?!! ;)
