I managed to find a spathe with a rotting limb. Luckily, when I cut open the kettle, the female and male flowers were still well intact. From the short spadix and the purple interior of the kettle wall, I believed we could conclude the identity as C. pallinervia.

C. pallidinervia 'Sibu 2'
We found another patch of cryptocorynes in another black water ditch along the road towards Sibu. From the apperance and location, we guessed that it should be similar to the 1st cryptocoryne we found, C. pallidinervia.
