It must not be confused with the varieties Bourboulenc (Ondenc), Mauzac Blanc (Béquin), Piquepoul Blanc or Trousseau Gris (mutation of Trousseau Noir), despite seemingly suggestive synonyms or morphological similarities. Nothing is known about the parentage and possible relations to the red varieties Arrouya (Dourec Noir) or Canari Noir (Ondenc Noir). According to DNA analyses carried out in 2009, there is possibly a parent-offspring relationship with the variety Roussette d'Ayze. A colour mutation with reddish berries is Ondenc Gris.
