The auricles on the flower of Cycleman hederifolium are diagnostic,
as is the coiling of the stem for the seed capsule. The drooping stem
diagnostic for Cycleman persicum, as is winter flowering, Hederifolium has
its main flowering BEFORE winter and will do so regardless of drought. Both
are marvelous plants.
Cyclamen intaminatum precedes C hederifolium, then C graecum, C cilicicum
follows it, along with C rolfsianum, then C persicum,  then  C coum, then
alpinum, then C repandum and its relatives, then C purpurescens in summer
apoligies for my misspelling earlier.
