Ref your Snowdrop I still think Galanthus flora plena most likely.
I picked what must have been almost the last snowdrop bloom for 2015 and one of the features of it being almost over are predominant stamens you may or may not see these on your flowers
See what you think Strong green bars inside sharp v on the outside, not conclusive but best I can come up with
Had another look at yours the outside v appears more rounded than I first thought on yours.
just looked at the bible ‘Snowdrops’ and the Gunter Waldorf ’ Snowdrops’ neither had a clear picture

I agree mine does look like the G. nivalis flore pleno. I have looked back at the photo you posted and written a comment there re the 'V' on the inner petal. My one does not yet have the prominent orange stamens. I take it they become more visible as the flower opens. We have had two nice sunny days in a row and I cannot remember the last time that happened.
