One thing I've learned from this group is properly identifying NOIDs. And not to give away/trade noids with a tentative name.
I had a bloom today of an iris I bought from our local iris club---it was supposed to be "Skating Party." It looks like "Goldkist," which I have.
My question is: are there other irises that look like Goldkist that I should compare it to?
Below are my pictures of Goldkist and the NOID. It sure compares well. If you all think that's what it is, I'll go with it. This is my first attempt to properly identify a NOID. Any advice is welcome! Thank you, everyone!
Not sure how to rotate in post.
And below is the NOID blooming in the garden. My Goldkist is blooming, too:

Unfortunately you cannot rotate a photo in a post, but as an admin I can rotate it manually. It generally takes a day or so for the change to become visible, though, due to the way the images are cached.
Looks like it with your excellent comparison of the components. Blooms at same time also. Do they have other growth characteristics that are the same-height, number of buds on stem, size of foliage, purple markings on base foliage or spathes, etc. If so then declare a winner and tell the source in the iris club it was mis-id'd and ask for Skating Party.
