Cryptocoryne sp. 'Lingga Island'

I had the good fortune to be given a few specimens of blooming cryptocorynes collected from Lingga Island. Below are the photographs of 2 of them with spathes of differing apperance.
The first had yellow limb with irregular protuberances and reddish throat.
The second specimen looked like miniature C. schulzei spathe with dark purple tube.
Whether these are considered as new species or a variaiton of existing species, we will leave it to the experts and you to decide on your own.
