Looks more like some sort of variation of Hemigraphis Colorata. Not a true aquatic if so. Even if it's not, true aquatics *in general* tend not to have colouring like that.

wow - you are right - I believe.

tigger - amazing response! - I suspected this. And all I have to go on is the following book, "aquarium plants" by Peter Hiscock and it's accompanying pictures.
Thanks for the help!
I believe I will order a rotala macrandra for that area of the tank.
