Dear Byaram,
Thank you for your comments. I shall post photographs of the other two species to highlight their differences.
In Cyprus the genus Cyclamen is represented with three species: Cyclamen cyprium (endemic) C. persicum and C. graecum.
The main differences between these species are:
Cyclamen persicum: flowers appearing in spring time (after the leaves); the pedicels of flowers do not coil in fruiting stage.
Cyclamen cyprium and C. graecum: flowers appearing in autumn (usually) in advance of the leaves; the pedicels of flowers coiling in fruiting stage.
Cyclamen cyprium: flowers are sweetly-scented; the base of corolla has a conspicuous M-shaped magenta blotch; the pedicels of flowers coil from apex downward in fruiting stage.
Cyclamen graecum: flowers are not distinctively fragrant; the pedicels of flowers coiling irregularly in two directions from about the middle.

Best regards,
