I am green with envy seeing your piccies of C. robertianus which Frank, the Beestons and I looked unsuccessfully for at a supposed site near Sparti in c. 2000. It certainly is a beautiful crocus.

Crocus robertianus

I don't think C. robertianus has ever been reliably recorded from the Peloponnese.

Frank had been given a possible location but we considered it to be doubtful and I have never heard of anyone else finding it there or, as you say, anywhere else in the Peloponnese.
