Herman, very nice flowering!
The seeds I got from you germinated well in the autumn after about three months from sowing, except C.purpurascens didn't, but I expect to see it germinating later next spring.

Yes, it does look like C. coum.  I've had this plant since 1998 under the name C. intaminatum.  All this time under the wrong name? :(

Claire, the flowers from intaminatum are smaller and here it flowers already in October. Cyclamen coum start flowering now.

Claires is certainly no C. intaminatum. Which has nor dark marks on the flower and another flower shape. Intaminatum refers to the flower without dark marks at the mouth.
C.intaminatum should start flowering between July and August.
Hermans might be C.cilicium which is a close relative to intaminatum. Later flowering and more elegant thinner petals make me doubt the C.intaminatum.
But in this case I do not know how much they vary.

Axel, my Cyclamen intaminatum came originally from the late Jan Bravenboer in the Netherlands. They spread around.  I have added another more detailed picture. Also a picture from Cyclamen cilicium in our garden that flowers at the same time.

I personally would be cautious planting such closely related species in the garden. In nature they are divided by quite a distance and a lot of mountains in Turkey. They flower in the same season. What I read intaminatum starts a bit earlier.

C.intaminatum should have grayish veins in the white form. Pinks should have them in deeper pink. I do not know how consistent this is and if these species really do hybridize. In case they do, pure forms will not exist very long.
If the hybrid is sterile, no harm done, but I could not find information about the risk. Maybe someone does.

Cyclamen creticum, some find it difficult to grow and keep it, here my climate seems to please them.
an easy species from fresh seeds.

Cyclamen rhodium ssp. rhodium. Is this name right or is it another subspecies?
I have been told that the colour should be lighter.

Autumn flowering species started a few weeks ago.
Cyclamen graecum is the one that seems best suited to our garden even self seeding gently (with the aid of ants I presume).
The parent plant has not flowered yet and I worry that it has succumbed to some lurgy :-\
Here are pics of some of the seedlings in the same bed,
cheers
