This is another of the caulescent, or stemmed, forms of Streptocarpus, usually placed within the subgenus Streptocarpella.  Some growers and botanists believe that a separate genus should be established for these plants, as they appear to be more closely related to other genera (e.g. Saintpaulia) than to Streptocarpus.  A closeup of the flowers may be seen here.
