Does that help? I know next to nothing about plants. Also, aren't the peace lilly leaves really quite dark, not red on the bottom, and thick? These are thin, pale, red on the bottom, and thin.
That is a crypt. The rhizome is that short thick bit from which the white roots are growing. And yes, to cement the deal
the red underside of the leaves would suggest crypt. As for species, it might be Cryptocoryne pontederiifolia which as you can see by the shading is in our profiles. This is one of my favourite crypts. In the profile I added a photo of its habitat which I always find interesting, I hope some others do too.
