Here at Wisley the RHS did a trial of "little blue bulbs" which ran from
2000 to 2003 and included about 80 species and cultivars from 8 genera,
including Chionodoxa. One of the aims of the trial was to clarify the
confused taxonomy of this group of bulbs.  The results of the trial were
published in a colour bulletin written by Brian Mathew and Melanie Dashwood.
The bulletin can either be purchased for a modest fee or viewed for free on
the RHS website at:…

(Scroll down to find the relevant bulletin, entitled "Hyacinthaceae - little
blue bulbs")

Hopefully this will help with the identifications. I think the original
picture Arnold posted a question about is probably C. sardensis
