Ah yes. That shows yellow where it should be (which is minimal in the Crimson Rosella) and normally swamped by other colours. It is the reduced blue that allows some yellow to show. I might be picky but I suggest use of the word “lutino” would be for one that has yellow where it should NOT be. This one is strange because although the blue and black is very reduced but it is not eliminated.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed views.  While I not Phillip’s point, this rear view shows quite a lot of yellow on the back and tail.
