Gail, pending arrival of the experts I'd suggest C. niveus which has a yellow throat. 
The stamens are paler than usual but I think this falls within the variability of the species.

Thank you Ashley, I did buy Crocus niveus from Paul Christian in 2017 (although that was said to be the late form)

My friend George got this crocus as something else (C. serotinus salzmannii)!
It's in flower now (end of winter in Australia).
Any ideas on what it is?
cheers

Can anyone identify this Crocus for me? Im in Tassie, so its late winter/early spring down here. The closest match I can find is Crocus etruscus. However, the absence of any yellow in the throat (at any point in the life of the flower) threw me. Perhaps a particular cultivar of etruscus?

Im unsure if the provenance of the bulb, but its likely from Marcus Harvey, either purchased from him or from some of his seeds.  Perhaps a hybrid? Once again I find myself thinking if only Marcus was still here to ask.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
