I'm not entirely convinced the plant I have available isn't actually T. lorentziana, but I like to keep the labels as I receive them unless I am 100% sure it is something else.  True balsasensis looks more closely related to tectorum, what I have looks a lot more like lorentziana.  Either way, it's a pretty plant with soft gray leaves and a really pretty, unique bloomspike
