Question Help Identify this Floater I got in the mix

So I got a RAOK of floaters a long time ago from Albert and finally got all of the duckweed out of it and now I'm moving all of the frogbit to another tank, but I can't figure out what this one is, it reminds me of duckweed but is different. Please excuse the Riccia it came loose.

Just another Shrimper wondering around the Fourm :p

The picture looks somewhat like giant duckweed, but it is hard to tell.

Yep, it's Giant Duckweed. Much easier to control than the smaller variety and it doesn't grow nearly as quickly.
