Your photo looks like the photos you posted below it to me,

However,
the wiki writeup makes it sound greener, and that it would have some green evidence at the top of the standards.
https://wiki.irises.org/TbPthr...
then again, some of the photos on the wiki don't really seem to show that green evidence on the standards. To my eyes anyway.

my opinion is a firm "might be."

The description of Suspicion states that it has a yellow beard, Greenish yellow style arms and lavender lip and a pronounced sweet fragrance
Ivory Ghost has a golden orange beard, pale amber style arms and slight fragrance. Looking at the photos in the database, Ivory Ghost also has a lavender lip.

I think the beards on Ivory Ghost are more of a dark orange

even though the beards look orange on some photos of suspicion too.


My vote is for Suspicion based on beard colour. Does your iris have a pronounced sweet frangrance?

Guys. You all are so good to give your opinions. I did not notice a pronounced fragrance. But then my mind was focused on getting accurate color and focus! You can really tune out a lot!
Will keep all these comments in mind. It seems the best choice is Suspicion. I will revisit next year with better photos.
