Backs of the flowers help with id for violets

The shape of the sepals (in flower and in fruit if possible) and the shape of the leaves (and hairiness of the leaf stalk) helps to separate violets - very hard to tell them apart from just face-on pictures. The pale spur eliminates some possibilities, but I don't think it makes a definite id. I can just about recognise 5 violets now, but there are still several I don't know.

But someone else might be braver! Could be V riviniana, but several others (that I'm not familiar with) are possible.
