Very nice Hans, I especially like the last one which is new to me, with its many flowers.

The last one looks like Leucojum tingitanum (which I assume is now an Acis as well?) except for it's flowering time.  I hadn't realised that valentinum looked so much like it (I've never seen much about valentinum except reading the name).  Nice pics, particularly of roseum which I find is so dificult to capture properly.  Excellent!
Cheers.

Paul ,
A. tingitianum looks really different -I will send later pics .
My A. tingitianum comes from Archibald -so I'm shure they are true
Thank you for the compliments ;D

Hans,

That's interesting.  I haven't checked pics of mine but superficially at least that was what I recalled it looking like.  Definitely that pure white, although I am not sure the flowers sat as open as those.  Assuming of course what we have here in Aus IS tingitanum, as sometimes we do have imposters under a given name that have been perpetuated without realising it.
Cheers.
