Is this a correct name for an entry in our database? Narcissus tazetta subsp. tazetta
I found a most wonderful, tiny narcissus in the Brent and Becky catalog under the name of Narcissus canaliculatus. The Catalogue of Life shows that this name is a synonym of N. tazetta subsp. tazetta.

I am not finding this in our database.

I've added N. canaliculatus to the N. tazetta subsp. tazetta entry as a synonym.

Curious then about this entry
Tazetta Daffodil (Narcissus tazetta subsp. tazetta)

is it different?

It looks like a duplicate entry, that used the specie name as a cultivar name?

I'm sure you're right, Lynn. I suspect it is a species name being treated as a cultivar name, but I'll leave the corrections to jmorth because the Narcissus database is his domain.

Makes sense Zuzu. I didn't even think about contacting him in the first place.
I know when I was looking at this plant it was listed on some sites as a cultivar.
