Mixed origin systems can be a combination of unknown, adaptive, spontaneous, or created. It can also be used like praesigenic, denoting a system with complex or hard to define origins.
If a system has one primary origin but ultimately multiple causes among headmates, the term isoscegenic may apply. There's also much overlap with polygenic and pangenic.
