Arilbred Dwarf and Median Checklist

I have long been a devotee of the smaller arilbreds. In 1980, The Medianite published the checklist of arilbred dwarfs and medians that I had compiled. An updated version was published in 1997. I have now brought it up to date through 2018:

A Checklist of Arilbred Dwarfs and Medians Through 2018 (pdf format)

Note: beginning with the 2020 edition, the Aril Society International official checklist now icludes ABD and ABM designations for all applicable entries. Consequently, I am no longer updating a separate checklist for arilbred dwarf and medians. The 2018 edition will remain available here for reference, as it contains some information on historic varieties that are not included in the ASI checklist.

You may also want to look at the accompanying articles, The Arilbred Median Story (a history of arilbred median breeding) and Coming to Terms with Arilbred Medians (the rationale for the classification system used in the checklist, included as an appendix to the checklist). I've also provided a short FAQ on the terminology (pdf).

Note: These supersede my 1997 checklist and article The Smaller Arilbreds (pdf).
