None exist as far as I know. Its very difficult to have a complete list of morphs for any species due to constant changes and new morphs being developed. Though bearded dragons don't have the variety of morphs as say, ball pythons, it wouldn't be as extensive. However some morphs are not really mentioned anymore, and many are so mixed up its hard to figure out end results.

Then there is the confusion of names...often produced by dedicated breeders selectively breeding for specific traits which may not inherit as simple recessive...like picking the reddest dragons and breeding them together, selecting the reddest offspring and bringing them to other very red dragons to produce better odds in having more red in the offspring. But if you take a nice red dragon several generations later and breed it to a normal, then even if you breed the offspring together or back to one of the parents, you aren't likely to get the same level of red as the parents....so its not a simple recessive type trait.

Dragons do have simple recessive morphs...hypos are for one...(though not sure if hypos are the same as pastels..) Leatherbacks seem to be both recessive and dominate...depending if Italian or American...unless I am just confused about that trait...Translucents seem to be recessive...if I remember correctly...

The other odd morphs, like Chris Allen reds (which I believe are just selective bred...taking really red dragons and breeding them to other non related red dragons etc.) I don't know if they are recessive or just some incomplete recessive type trait. There are some names for morphs that seem to have been changed...or just not produced anymore..like snows...which were very white...I would even say leucistic, in appearance.

The Bearded Dragon Manual may help with tracking down breeders of some of the original morphs for dragons... but even then, it will be alot of work to come up with a list of morphs and who created them, then getting pictures to show good examples.
