Afr. Trop.
Biologie : Herb 30-65 cm tall; corm 1,5-2,2 cm Ø; leaves 4-8, the lower three to five basal, 0,5-1,2 cm wide, reaching at least to the base of the spike, sometimes slightly exceeding it, relatively soft-textured, without thickened margins or midrib; flowers white splashed with dark purple on lower tepals; perianth tube 9-15 cm long; filaments exserted 1-1,5 cm; anther appendages 2-5 mm long.
Ecologie : In shade near stream; cliffs of volcanic rock; swampy ground; waterfalls; crevices in steep rock face; foot of wet rocks; river banks; 1200-2400 m alt.
  Near G. aequinoctialis (with firm textured leaves). G. iroensis is a poorly known species and perhaps identical with G. murielae (cf. above under that species).
  Occasionally grown in gardens; available in the nursery trade; then better known as G. callianthus or Acidanthera bicolor.
