Janis , some beautyful scillas of yours , particulary the rare S. winogradowii.
  Flowering at the moment in my garden is a much lesser beauty , but valuable as it does so in autumn , is S. lingulata var. ciliolata , coll. in Tunisia .

A particularly attractive autumn flower; these autumn varieties are rather neglected, I think.

This marvellous Scilla bifolia I found in Turkey. It looks so beautiful that I even don't trust that this is bifolia, but no other links in Scilla key foundable.
Scilla libanotica from Wallis nursery 'Buried Treasures'.
On last picture great surprise. Many years ago I got good amount of Scilla sibirica bulbs collected wild by my friend in E Ukraina. From those I selected 3 forms - very deep lilac blue, traditional blue and pure white. This white was almost identical with common cv. ALBA but blooms much earlier. 'Alba' starts blooming when white from Ukraina really ended. This spring it bring surprise coming up slightly pink toned. Why?  Hard winter?

More surprise I got from Puschkinia scilloides collected by me in Iran. During our trip I collected many samples of this marvellous plant as it is very variable, but generally blue. Between thousands and thousands of blue colored I found only one with pure creamy white flowers. It took a lot of work to dig it out as I had only pocket-knife with me and its bulb led very deep in soil. You could image my frustration when last year it bloomed with ordinary blue flower... :'(  But... this spring it comes up with beautiful white flowers :D. Will post it after few days. Now picture from wild.

Beautiful, but not hardy here. I lost all my African scillas.

You have an extraordinary collection of Scilla,
 By the way S. libanotica is very rare in the wild.

Roland,
Personally I haven't good key for Scillas. I'm using Flora of Europe and Flora of Turkey. May be there is some made by Speta, but many of his species are not accepted by other botanists and I think he wrote in German.

Here few Scillas of today
Scilla bifolia with semidouble flowers - 'Norman'
Once more Scilla bithynica from Aragats mountain
Scilla collected by me in Iran as S. gorganica, but name isn't checked
Excellent plant of Scilla melaina
Excellent but still unidentified Scilla from Turkey and as last
Scilla vvedenskyi from high mountains in Tadjikistan soon will be in full flowers

Now Scilla khorasanica from NE Iran and relative to Scillas sensu lato (by old system)
Puschkinia sp. from Karabel pass in Turkey. I think new species as it keeps the form of inflorescence in cultivation, too. It is so different from P. scilloides. Picture from wild and in cultivation but from small bulb.

Chionodoxa nana from Crete has the smallest flowers, but is very nice
Two forms of Pusckkinia scilloides - different by color, both from Armenia and named by localities where collected by my friend Arnis
And two different Scilla sibirica forms from E Ukraina
The white one is very early. There is another white cv. named ALBA, but when this from Ukraina is in full bloom, cv. ALBA even didn't show noses out of soil
The other has distinctly lilac shade, may be something hided on picture but really very different from traditional deep blue shade, very early, too.
