Cryptocoryne usteriana Engler


Now here's a plant with a history. Described by Engler in 1920, it was confused with APO for decades until it was determined they were separate species. To make matters more confusing, the plant has four forms, some of which tend to look a bit like APO. Furthermore there is a fairly recently described species, C. coronata that looks like UST but has a flower like APO. All these three species are found the Philippine islands, where the only other crypt (so far) is PYG.
