Can you ID this multi-colored rainbow bearded iris?

This was a named iris when I bought it, but I've lost the tags. I think the name should sound familiar, if you can identify it.

It has quite distinctive colors!

I think I have a cousin of Afternoon Delight in my yard -- I think the name is Devilish Delight, but I can't find an online catalogue listing to confirm.

It's a very healthy creature -- this photo is from an unexpected fall rebloom -- although sometimes it throws a blossom or two that lack standards. I assume the deformity is related to whatever quirk makes the beard curl upward!

Here is a link that might be useful: Devilish delight, maybe?
