Gerd, It could be possible a mistake labelling the collection data?
This green tube and the curvature corresponds to N. gaditanus....

Rafa,
According Flora Vascular de Andalucía Occidental N. gaditanus is restricted to the south of Spain and Portugal.  So I believe you are right with your first guess.
N. assoanus grows further north in eastern Spain, France and Turkey(!).
This Flora also says for N. assoanus (although for ssp. praelongus ): tubo del periantio de 12-28 mm, recto o ligeramente curvado.
I am waiting for flowers from a plant which perhaps is more 'gaditanus' at least from the distribution. I'll send a pic.

This is so variable genus Narcissus that is impossible to recognize anything!!!
If the data collection is correct there is just this posibility (if botanists are right): Narcissus assoanus ssp. assoanus.
(= )

If I have understood well
:
N. gaditanus= curved, green/yellow tube
N. fernandesii= right, green tube
N. fernandesii var. rivas-martinezii = very little N. fernandesii, right leaves, and quite curved yellow tube (sometimes green).
N. baeticus = N. assoanus subsp. praelongus

YES, so it is. Sometimes a horror.

Where did you find the illustration? It looks familiar to me but I can't remember where I saw it (senior moment!).
