I often see an asterisk after some names in a pedigree. What's this mean?

Do you mean on the ARI certificates or on their Alpacanation listing?

My guess is that those animals whose names are followed by the asterisk have additional known ancestors that will not fit on the sheet of paper.

I just received a call from AOA about this... Mary Jane is correct. The asterisk means that there is more pedigree information available, but the certificate only goes back 4 generations.

Thanks for checking - that's good information to know.
