Wonderful photos, Kees and Hans!
Hans, your crocus IS boryi! Hadriaticus has yellow anthers!

Hans - the Montenegro crocus is C vernus ssp vernus.  This variant with dark blotches on the tips of the petals used to be called 'C heuffelianus' or 'C scepusiensis'.  Do you have any pictures which show the inside of the flower?

Hans, your first photo looks like Crocus hadriaticus.
The second could be C. boryi with its much devided style, but I can't see the anther colour.

I think the 2nd pic may be 2 species.  C boryi or C laevigatis for the open flower but the others have a brownish stain at the throat so must be C hadriaticus.  The 1st pic - yes, C hadriaticus.
