Unknown pink cupped daffodil

I’m going through my photos from very late spring (of very late-planted bulbs), posting some to Daffseek, and I came across this one that was labeled as ‘First Forma’.  The closest name on Daffseek is ‘First Formal’ and this looks nothing like it.  Does anyone have any suggestions?

    1. Where did you get it?  I had some from Scamp that looked a bit like that, but about half were definitely div 11.  We settled on an ID (there was a pink 11 in the storage bin next to it.)  If yours are from Scamp I can look it up for you.

    Looks a bit like ‘Night Life’ to me.

    I wonder if it could be ‘Pink Formal’. Jason, I agree this picture shows color much more similar to that of ‘Night Life’, but it is not unusual for color in pictures to vary considerably.

    It did come from Ron Scamp in 2017.  I had it listed as a 3 W-YWP 1974 Throckmorton.  ‘First Formal’ matches that info on Daffseek, but this doesn’t look like ‘First Formal’.  It does look a lot like ‘Night Life’ so maybe that is it.  It’s not a split cup, just a very frilly cup.  Thanks!
