Two crocuses of today - the first Crocus nevadensis from Morocco and then 4 pictures of Crocus stevensii named by me after Norman Stevens from Cambridge Bulbs - great traveller who together with Jim Archibald introduced many new plants from wild into cultivation.

Now 2 pictures of most likely new species from Iran (still must to check), then 2 pictures with open flower of Crocus kurdistanicus. The last is very similar to C. danfordiae and at present I can separate deep yellow form of danfordiae from kurdistanicus only by shape of flower segments - in danfordiae they has narrower bottom part (looks as haft), but in kurdistanicus they are ovate without haft-like base. I'm attaching here some Turkish danfordiae picture from earlier years where clearly can be observed shape of flower segments.
