This is one of the Streptocarpus from Madagascar that Hilliard and Burtt in the classic work Streptocarpus: An African Plant Study refer to as “saintpaulia-like”. Indeed the habit of S. beampingaratrensis and S. andohahelensis along with the leaves with a long petiole suggest Saintpaulia much more than either of the caulescent or acaulescent Streptocarpus.
