You may have already discovered this in your Google searching, but if 
you want to compare the two directly yourself by growing them both, 
you can of course get Aristea eklonii from several sources including 
the Saunders's Silverhill Seeds. Plant World Seeds in England sells 
seeds of Libertia caerulescens 
They describe it as "A most unusual coloured dwarf Chilean libertia. 
Compact basal iris-like leaves, the intriguing flower heads being 
that rare shade of palest china blue." They have a tiny picture of 
the flowers that does look a lot like A. ecklonii.
