Beautiful photograph ... One from Satara-Kas is referred as "Y-tura", this one jokingly i use to refer as "I" tura.
I too would go with I-tura !!
Y-tura was perhaps coined because the pair of inflorescence and the stem alludes to the English letter Y.
On the same lines, in this case, it is very well I-tura !!
