A different Trimezia question

One obvious difference between Neomarica and Trimezia is the shape of the 
scape.  In Neomarica, the scape is flattened and winged, looking very much like 
a leaf; even the terminal bract is erect, looking like a leaf tip.  In the photo 
of Trimezia, the scape looks more or less cylindric; certainly not winged.

shows the only image that seems to be in the web of Trimezia martinicensis. 
There is also a stamp depicting this species. All the others show Trimezia 
steyermarkii with the flowers about to open properly. This is the plant that is 
known as "Neomarica longifolia"
