Hi Alisdair,
I've now found out that the seed was collected at Coripe, Sevilla, Spain which apparently is now included in N. obsoletus.
I'll wait to see if Rafa can confirm this or will offer an alternative!
Here are a few more pics,
cheers

Hi Alisdair,
Rafa says it's what he calls Narcissus deficiens.

Here's one I grew from seed from Rafa as N. pseudonarcissus ssp muņozii garmediae, now just Narcissus muņozii garmediae,
cheers

This week another of Rafa's little daffs has flowered (it's probably the smallest trumpet I've ever grown!):
Narcissus jacetanus ssp jacetanus [Coll Rafa DD 8-05-07 Alava Egino "Hoya delalace" Espana]
Sown 29-05-2010.

Good heavens! They are amazing. I'm never sure though about such large cups on such short stems. Like the shortest forms of Lilium formosanum which always look to me top-heavy.

Hi Alisdair,
the flower is in correct proportions but looks top-heavy because of that pic (taken on my phone);
Here are a few taken on my camera,

Lovely to see these cool spring flowers while much of the Mediterranean and California is still sweltering in this unusually hot summer!

Hi Alisdair,
interestingly enough we've been having one of our coldest winters with consecutive days of frost decimating many plants!
However the daffs are unaffected!
1) 'Snook'
A  couple of N. cyclamineus hybrid from Keira Bulbs
2) KB-M-6WP-2-15
3) KB-M-31-2000 x 1
4) Narcissus tazetta bertolini
5) KB-M-2YO-1-17 x 2
6) Narcissus hispanicus;
7)  comparing N. hispanicus to N. jacetanus ssp jacetanus  ;D
cheers
