No idea. Where did it come from?

I don't know but I may have something similar or the same. It's no id for me too. I got it from Home Depot.

Moby, got them from a trade; no name listed.

Joe, is yours very tall?

Jo Ann, thanks, that maybe it.

I have a yellow LA that looks similar except the spotting spreads out farther into the petals. It's about 4 feet tall and multiplies very quickly! Also a NOID.

This is where I am going to jump in and point out the differences I see between Brian's LA and Betsy's yellow lilies:

Brian's NOID LA lily has a fine brown pencil edge on the petals and they appear to face upward. It is more "bowl" shaped unless Brian can tell us they open up more.

Betsy's lily lacks the pencil edge, has fewer spots that are closer to the base and opens wide. The area around the nectaries appear to be lighter than the overall tepal color. Or is it the lighting that makes it look lighter? Both of Brian's lilies look solid yellow all the way to the base.

Brian's Home Depot lily does look similar but the spots are larger and I think (not easy to tell from the angle of the photos) that his blooms are concentrated closer together with Betsy's having a more open form.

My 2 cents...

You are quite correct Connie! The flowers don't open much more than what the picture shows and they are more bowl shaped & up facing. These are crowded, there's at least 4 plants jammed together. Like I said they multiply RAPIDLY! I went from 3 bulbs to at least 30 in no more than 5 years without any propagation interventions on my part. The colour is off on my picture and shows darker than it actually is and masking the lighter centre. Another difference is the stem colour, Betsy's looks like it has a very dark stem where mine is an even green it's full length. I'm not suggesting they are the same plant just offering up a yellow NOID of my own.

I know I'm replying to an old thread, but I thought it might be useful anyway. This one looks very much like "London" to me. I don't have it, nor is there a photo on this site, but one of the suppliers I was looking at (Golden Ray Gardens) had something very similar. There's some photos on the Dave's Garden website as well:

Look closer and you will see these are two different lilies. Joe's lily has a brilliant yellow stigma while most photos of London (including the one in the link above) show a darker, reddish stigma. Unfortunately the entry for this lilium in the RHS register does not indicate the stigma color.

Ah, you are right, Connie. I had missed that difference. Thanks!
