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
