Can anyone help me ID this blue spring flower?

I've seen this while working in our college's herbarium, but it was in an old, damaged, unlabeled collection that got thrown out and I forgot to write down the name. This looks like a picture of a double-blooming variety, but it's the same plant. Common or scientific names would be great. Thanks!

This looks like one of the Siberian Squills, a kind of Scilla siberica.


I grow some Spring Beauty in my garden because it tolerates some shade.

Reply:Could be a Chionodoxa species. I'm pretty sure its in the lily family, whatever it is.
