I'm pretty sure the 'tropica' Crypt is a man-made cultivar. Crypt lutea is just a variety of C. walkeri. Properly, its known as C. walkeri var. lutea. Cabomba aquatica is Giant or Yellow Cabomba. The Nomaphilia is just a synonym for Hygrophilia coryambosa, which the plant is normally called. Nomaphilia stricta is a defunct name.
Other than that, the Mermaid was right on.

Cryptocoryne walkeri = Cryptocoryne lutea = I mentioned both as they are sold under both names...

Also pretty sure that Yellow Cabaomba is Cabomba asiatica and not Cabomba aquatica - don't want to argue Dave <grins> Just seems we know them under diff names

Special Blue Stricta is also a common name for Nomaphila siamensis
