Crocus boryi (5-8cm high) is a native plant of cretan flora mainly in West and South Crete. It was firstly described by Jagues Ettienes Gay. Crocus boryi is deciduous. The simple leaves are alternate. They are linear and sessile with entire margins and parallel. It produces solitary white cup-shaped flowers from September to Octobe venation.

Although not perfect specimen, it is very interesting to see this Crocus species presented here. I believe you have sharpened the pic a bit too much, as evident from the white fringes seen on the petals.

Have a pleasant weekend, Niko,
