Not a clue, I can't even see anything similar to it in your journal.
I smell a rat, It's a garden plant isn't it? :lol:

It was in my cube tank and a bona fidae aquatic plant.

Definitely not an Echinodorus, think of another rhizomatous genus, lots of species, Asian...

So what is it then? I been lying awake at night worrying about it but unable to get on UKAPS to check it and when I do, there's no answer! It's like having the last page missing from the book!

My guess is Crypt. ciliata.

?

Sorry guys I'd forgotten about this! It is Crytocoryne lingua. I suppose you got that one Matt (not sure I'd allow that in my class though, but marks for ingenuity!!!) so your turn!

Utricularia? ot showing bladders of course. Can't remember the species that has nice whorls like that - is it U.vulgaris or U.macrorrhiza?

Yes this is a Utricularia specie :) well done!
In the order list it doesn't say which one exactly so you win.
