Crocus 'Golden Bunch'

I was enjoying the photos on the wiki Crocus page tonight, and they reminded
me of a question which has been on my mind for the last few weeks of this
crocus season.

Years ago I remember buying corms of Crocus ancyrensis 'Golden Bunch'. I was
reminded of this by Tony Goode's wiki photo of this cultivar. 

Recently I reread the account of Crocus in Collins Guide to Bulbs (1961) and
ran across this cultivar name used for a form of Crocus suterianus. Twenty
years later Matthew treated suterianus a form of Crocus olivieri olivieri. 

So, fellow crocomanes, is there someone out there who can tell me if there
are two Crocus cultivars with the name 'Golden Bunch', one a form of C.
ancyrensis and the other a form of Crocus o. olivieri?
