defect in seeing color

Searched: Wikipedia article "color blindness"

I am trying to find the name (or an on-line resource that will get me there) for a particular (and probably obscure) kind of color vision deficiency based on a single symptom.

An object - in this case a piece of fabric - looks bright lime green when seen in sunlight. However, when seen in artificial light it turns into pale creamy yellow.

Any ideas?
