Some examples of an Asian/Burmilla. "The Burmese in a fancy coat."
In other countries and cat registries these cats sometimes have different breed and colour names.
In England and Europe the Burmilla is a term used  only for the cat you see below in the first tile. The longhair opposite is called a Tiffanie, and the Black cat is called a Bombay -  All others are classed as "Asians" along with a colour/coat discriptor. They almost all come from the same breeding and gene pool. (Chinchilla Persian and  European Burmese)
Some few other  cats were allowed and used for a short period of time prior to year 2000. See history
New Zealand has a grouping of Silver  and Cinamon Burmese that date back to an  outcross breeding in the 70's with a domestic silver shorthair tabby. see links page "Cranreuch" They  did not get the longhair gene and chose not to differentiate the breed name.
The Australians we understand also allow outcrossing to Silver Longhair Exotic in the foundation breeding an "Exotic" is  a shorthair Chinchilla) and allowed repeat back breedings.See history
Canada  uses the term "Burmilla"only,  with a full colour/coat discriptor. The Chinchilla is used only once.
