I also have usteriana/ aponogetifolia in the same tank and it's very different.

Boh that's a big one, realy would love to know what it is as well. There are quite some crypts around.. Look in the flowgrow.de database :) If it's anywhere it probably is there.. :thumbup:

You may have the green type of C. usteriana. I have it too, and it look quite similar. A nice and relatively easy plant, very willing to spread.
If it is the one, its full name is Cryptocoryne usteriana var. bogner.
You will have to ID it from flower, though, to be certain for Cryptocoryne (and all other flowering plants).
PS - don't mix up usteriana and aponogetifolia.......they are two different species, though having been considered one species in the past.
If you have true C. aponogetifolia, it will have much more "hammered" leafplate and a more transparent, green colour.
The two other types of C. usteriana will both have burgundy-red underside of leafplate, but look pretty much like this one.

Thanks Mick,
I know they are 2 different species but as I wasn't sure which I have it was the safer option to list both
