The flower looks right for L. aurea, chinensis, and L. traubii.  The key for me to distinguish them are the leaves, as L. aurea are quite distinctive and the first species leaves to emerge in September.

> Would the Lycoris experts please take a look at this and let me know what they think? It was purchased years ago from a mass market mail order catalog as Lycoris aurea. I did not expect it to be Lycoris aurea, and now that I've seen it in bloom descriptions of Lycoris aurea suggest that it is not that species. But what is it? Is this Lycoris traubii? It's about twenty inches high.
