Synonyms

Included are Lagenandra's, as there was (and is) some dispute on the relation with Cryptocoryne.
This list is generally based on the opinion as there is in Western Europe which was set by Niels Jacobsen.
There are a lot of 'fancynames', introduced by hobbyists and cultivators without any status. These are not included.
