Wossner black wings, johanna burkhardt
Wtf are you talking about?
Are these the same?
Technically no, depending on who you speak too
Wossner black wings is roth x anitum, RHS recognise this as a species for registration
Johanna burkhardt is roth x adductum
Unfortunatly the problem is many don't recognize anitum as a seperate species but rather as a variety of adductum.
The AOS refused to accept anything with anitum in it (as anitum is not listed by CITES) for judging so most people used roth x adductum var anitum = johanna burkhardt for showing. This created the mess these two are now in.
Ok, because there is also paul parks, sandy x adductum v. Anitum and yang ji hawk sandy x adductum var anitum
Paul parks is sanderianum x adductum not car anitum but due to AOS BS a lot of people hid yang ji hawk as PP same as johanna burkhardt
yep, a mess.
You have a similar situation with the cross Chou-Yi Anigode ( godefroyae x adductum) and Hung Sheng Tango (leucochilum x adductum). The Hung Sheng Tango I've seen for sale were made with the anitum. But, RHS puts them as synonyms...
I'm not even sure if either cross were ever made with a "plain" adductum.
We don't have any anitum here!! :ninja:
I think one set of the name is older before they used anitum as a parent in the basically the same cross, although of course the color might come out better with anitum.
I like the name Woessner Black Wing a lot, by the way, especially when Woessner is pronounced correctly in German!
Separate names with a comma.
