John Blanchard's  book is the best source available at this time.  A
monograph is in the pipeline.  
Jane, If you could post some pictures of your unknown flowers with any
information you might have, perhaps I could help with identification.  Have
just returned from another trip to Spain, perhaps the 40th where I have gone
about 40 times since 1988.  Saw N. longispathus again and many other species
in the mountains southeast of Madrid.

So what you're saying is that there is no monograph for Narcissus?? I'm
almost at a loss for word since this is one of the most broadly grown in the
bulb world. But then again, it's mostly hybrids that people grow.
