Can someone tell me the differences between L. tsingtauense and Super Tsing?

Today, my Super Tsing bloomed. I started from seed on 10-30-09 and it was labeled: Super Tsing seed M OP

Yes, a very nice wild looking lily, Michael!

Of course, Super Tsing is not a seed grown strain, so your seedling, especially being open pollinated, cannot rightly be called Super Tsing. Rather, it is a seedling of Super Tsing, as you clarified.

Super Tsing flowers are quite regular, and symmetrical on three axes. That your seedling is not, suggests the pod parent was pollinated with something with L. distichum or L. medeoloides genes. Likely from the common imposter L. tsingtauense that is actually a natural hybrid of L. tsingtauense and/or L. distichum aand L. medeoloides.

This is Super Tsing

The real L. tsingtauense has completely upfacing with uniformly symmetrical flowers. You will notice that the spotting pattern is different, as well as the individual spots themselves. Super Tsing never has upfacing flower, but should be symmetrical. I have a whole bunch of them in bud now:
