Chionodoxa help

Discussion of a dark-colored Chionodoxa larger than C. sardensis made me 
think of two larger, darker-flowered plants I have here, one that is quite 
tall and is probably C. siehei, and another I grew from seed under the name 
C. tmolii. I thought I remembered a discussion of the genus in Brian 
Mathew's late lamented "Bulb Newsletter," but I find the note (in issue no. 
7) to be quite short and not committed to identifying C. tmoli (not tmolii, 
for reasons Brian explains) with better-understood taxa. The note also 
mentions that at the time (1994) a National Collection of Chionodoxa was 
held by Alan Dickinson. Does anyone know if he still has this collection?
