She is a dominant pied spangle. That means that her father must be a double factor spangle masking dominant pied and split for opaline. The dominant pied cannot be carried as split but it can be masked in inos and double factor spangles. He must be split for opaline because if the opaline was just masked like the pied all his daughters would show opaline.

No the / means split. She is not split. The opaline is visable so she is both mutations, an opaline spangle
