Lilium 'Mrs R O Backhouse'

I have two seed-grown clumps of martagon lilies that resemble 
pictures and descriptions of 'Mrs R O Backhouse'. However, the two 
clumps are fairly distinct.


1. Is 'Mrs R O Backhouse' generally considered to come true from seed?

2. What other lilies, species, hybrids, or cultivars, closely 
resemble 'Mrs R O Backhouse'?

3. How can these others be distinguished from 'Mrs R O Backhouse'?

Until quite recently these two clumps were suppositiously identified 
as 'Mrs R O Backhouse' and L. × dalhansonii, but images and 
descriptive texts found via Google reveal that the latter is quite 
distinct from the former. Whatever I have, it isn't × dalhansonii.

When these flower I'll try to image them for the wiki.
