Muscari armeniacum?

More likely to be a clone of the very common and very variable garden plant, m. armeniacum????
It is certainly near identical to a plant in my own garden that I have been assured to be this species.
Professional botanical sources on the www suggest that the 2 species are all but indistinguishable.
