Does anyone know what this little Narcissus could be?

I assume it's a "lost label"? Do you know if it is from seed, Mark or get it as a bulb? The flower does not look like N.asturiensis or N. jacetanus to me, corona too long and parallel. Could it be N. minor?

Do the outside petals reflex at all as they mature Mark? and how tall is the stem?

Lesley it's 7cm high and the outers do not reflex. Do you mean like N. cyc?

Oh, so it's quite short then. Yes, I meant in the manner of cyclamineus but not nearly so much, more like this one below (which it isn't).
