Anne,

Yvain  (with a Y  ;)) is not a common forname, it's come from a TV series in the 60's "Thierry la Fronde" where there was Yvain, a knight. Yvain is the knight with the Lion, a novel wrote by Chrétien de Troyes around 1176.
Since I'm a kid, I'm used to hear of Yvan, Ivan, Sylvain and all other thing which sound a bit the same  ;D

I think that Rafa is now naming this one as Narcissus deficiens (see http://www.srgc.net/forum/index.php?topic=15755.msg382522#msg382522)

Yes, I know this. But after I noticed that even some Spanish botanists followed the naming as shown in the link below I tend to use obsoletus (after I preferred miniatus for a long time).
It is a pity that after the discovery of the fact that the long known species Narcissus serotinus contains of two species such a naming confusion arose.

These are some Narcissus hybrids of different parentage but of similar appearence

1. +  2.  Narcissus x alentejanus (cavanillesii x serotinus s. str.)
3.         Narcissus x perezlarae from Sevilla (cavanillesii x obsoletus)
4. + 5.  Narcissus x perezlarae from Eastern Spain (Valencia) - said to be fertile and described
            by Fernandez Casas as Narcissus piifontianus - with special thanks to Rafa

Found today in Daffnet:

Harold Koopowitz, California
October 9, 2018

Note I use N. obsoletus as the correct name for N. elegans. Our paper on the name change was accepted and published in Phytotaxa.


Confusion perfect! I guess it is better now to add  author names to the species name in order to prevent mistakes.
