    I ran the name through Plantscope, the Dutch commercial plant registry - I couldn't find it there either.

    I think I'm ready to give up on this mission.
    A clonal name is only necessary in order to distinguish one plant from another, when both have the same name, but are not the same clone. When I raise a batch from a flask , obviously everything in the flask has the same name. If I flower them out, and I want to be able to distinguish them later, then some kind of additional name is necessary even if it as simple as #1, #'2 etc. These clonal names are not registered and have no formal meaning at all , so there is nothing to stop anyone giving all their plants clonal names. It does carry the suggestion that the plant bearing a name has been put up for an award , or maybe is thought good enough for that , so maybe its a bit dishonest if it is done unnecessarily.
