Above is what I got from the pages of Aquarienpflanzen, by Kasselmann.  My
translation of the names of the African countries from the German was just
guessing on my part.  *The A. barteri, var. angustifolia was formerly
called A. lanceolata.  **A. heterophylla was formerly called A. congensis,
var. crassispadix

Good luck!  Watch out for the Gaboon viper!
