Dunno. I think I've seen it someplace, I'd have to go dig.

Here's the paper on the Australian Aponogetons that I've annotated
a bit with pictures where available; some are apparanly not.


A. proliferus is an interesting livebearing skinny leaved plant that
looks a bit like Crypt. retrospiralis. A. bullosus looks like
C.balansae and A. vanbruggenii looks lie crispus. Nice plants
all, are they available in the trade in Australia do you know?
