This was a pup off of an Aec. star of linda, but the bloom is much different than the star of linda I am used to. Is it a mutation of some sort? Or can someone ID it as a registered cultivar? thanks.

I don't know that cross but there is a picture of it on http://www.fcbs.org (photo index) and it does look like it (It's not a great picture though...)
The inflorescence sure looks like it has Ae. fasciata in it.
