I looked for a picture of N. pachybulbos and best I can do is probably flower "D" at the bottom of the picture but it is looking sideways.
A is Papersails, can be 2 inches in diameter, to give you scale, B is a regular Paperwhite, C is ‘Froth’ =( Paperwhite x pachybulbos), directly under this is ‘Fluff’ also ( Paperwhite x pachybulbos) and D is I think straight N. pachybulbos. Hopefully I will remember to take a decent picture next year. We will also see if we can scan the paintings that Marilynn talked about.

Could you look at the photograph at

and say whether it is pachybolbus or not.
 
The flower grown in the UK as pachybolbus is sourced in Holland and is very different in form from the panizzianus which I have seen in Spain and grown in the UK. It is also in my experience much more difficult to get to flower, though the bulb is a similar size to panizzianus.
