Cyclamen elegans  - There has been much debate if this is a "good species" or merely a form of Cyclamen coum. Current thinking is that it is distinct. From the gardeners point of view, it has narrower and longer petals than the typical coum, and also it seems to be slower and harder to grow. Seed does not seem to be easy to come by either. Exceptionally both of my plants were bought rather than seed grown.
