Interesting documents on Cryptocoryne and Lagenandra in the internet! As most literature is not easy to find (you will have to look at botanical institutes for example), there is a demand on available digital resources. Of course, most documents are unavailable in a digital way because of copyright reasons, but some are.
Contributions and links to other resources are welcome!
