Kamon identification

Tahanala:

[Moved from identification megathread]

I just stumbled upon this picture from April 22, 2006. The maiko in the upper right corner is wearing a mon I've never seen before, and isn't currently in use. Would anyone have an inkling of who she is, and from which okiya? From the date and the mon on the other maiko, I believe she was in Miyagawachô.

Kikuyo:

I believe it is for the Toshikimi okiya, here is Kimitomo wearing that obi, and the picture is from 2006.

Momoyama doesn't have a picture for this okiya's crest, and the maiko in your picture is wearing a different kimono, so maybe I'm mistaken?

Tahanala:

Daidama's crest is katabami or oxalis, often listed as clover (Kimichie,) but I think it is the mon of the Toshikimi okiya, on Kimitomo.

thank you for he idea, I'm familiar with all the mon on the list, but not with those that have none.
