This is supposed to be Pizzazz, which did not bloom last year since many new bulbs abort here the first year, now it is nice and big and looks like white henryi without the papillae.
Well it has some just not colored up much, and the center is yellow. It is right by white henryi so I can really see the difference. And white henryi is normal colored this year since we are still having yo-yo weather so some weeks are ok, others are toxic. I may even get some seed this year since the toxic weeks have been broken up by nice weeks. We even had some rain-not that it is enough to settle the dust but pleasant to be outside for the little bit of good weather that there is here.
Anyone know who this may be?

Looks like it, but I don't think so. Stigma and pollen color. Pics. of Mr Cas at my place last year. EDIT ADDED. Well, on 2nd. thought, maybe it is Mr Cas. Hard to compare with a flash picture.

there is none to very little speckling of the papillae on my mystery plant. The normal light photos make the center look orange and it really is yellow. It is very nice so it is a keeper, just wish I could name it, it looks like it is just a variation of White henryi.

Here is a better photo, this is an aged flower and the speckling is showing up better.

It's a keeper whoever it is and a fortunate "accident". It's got a lot of style. Lovey dubby
