Description: 

Staurogyne sp. "Bihar" was imported from the north Indian state Bihar as an alleged Hygrophila species. However, its flower characteristics suggest that this unidentified plant might belong to the genus Staurogyne. Its submersed leaves are partially lobed and thus looks like Hygrophila pinnatifida.
S. sp. "Bihar" is widely spread in the aquarium hobby in the USA. It was imported into Russia over a year ago, but in the rest of Europe, it has probably not made its way into the hobby yet.
