Hi Leo,

On the second Moraea, is the spathe (bract that the bud comes out of)  
very transparent with distinct vertical veins?
Im guessing M. setifolia but not sure. Mine just finished blooming. Or  
is the spathe green? That might help identify.

For your third irid, I'll venture Ixia longituba, page. 241 in The  
Color Encyclopedia of Cape Bulbs. If you combine the length they give  
for perianth tube plus tepal length you get  5.5 cm, not 6.4 cm.

These are just guesses.
