Mystery lily from China

Dear all,

I have posted a photograph of a lily that I saw in Yunnan earlier this year 
to the "mystery bulbs" page of the WIKI at:…

To me, it looks close to Lilium nepalense.  However, according to the 
various reference books that I have, that species only grows on the other 
side of the Himalaya.  Can anyone give me a better name for the plant?  My 
thanks in advance for your help.

Incidentally, my thanks also goes to Alan Horstmann for his identification 
of my gladiolus as G. carmineus

Best regards,
David Victor
