Going by your non flash pic it looks a bit like a poly urethane type of finish. Shiny, scratched but not through the coating.
There is a way of checking.
You can scrape a bit off then soak it in various sovents to help work out what it is - but I've never done it.

That's a cool idea.... Please excuse my naivety, but which solvents would I need to test the samples with?
As a general rule, can you patch sections like I need to and have it look reasonable?

I'd guess a semi-gloss one-pack poly. But that's just a guess. As for exactly matching... I recently had floors done and all the people who quoted advised very strongly against trying to match previously done areas. They all said it was impossible to exactly match and you'd always see the join. So redo the whole area was the advice.
