Narcissus cyclamineus (Birmingham Botanic Gardens)

 Narcissus cyclamineus

The swept back (reflexed) perianth petals of this species daffodil resemble the cyclamen it is named for, if you can imagine a cyclamen ever being vibrant golden yellow. This is a tiny daffodil only about 15cm high, which needs to be grown in a container or alpine trough to appreciate its delicate beauty.
