If I remember the classifications right, there is no Anubias nana var.
lanceolata.  "Nana" is a variety of A. barteri.

A small anubias with lanceolate leaves might be A. barteri var. barteri. 

The plant I once grew and thought to be A. lanceolata was a large plant
that grew well emersed, not so well submersed and didn't grow at all
potted. It's leaves were deep green, smooth and waxy-looking, lanceolate,
vertical and 18" long.  It had a creeping rhizome about 3/4 inch thick.
