Can you identify this Ludwigia?

This was sold to me as Ludwigia ovalis but someone who seems to know his stuff said it wasn't. Does anyone know what plant this is?

pm'd. It fits some of the descriptions I've seen of L. ovalis, maybe just in my conditions it's not coloring up the same as in some pictures out there.

opposite leaves? not ovalis. L. ovalis has alternate leaves. May just be odd L. repens.

That other forum seems to be also thinking along the lines of L. repens.

Repens, hmmm, i actually just got a bunch of that yesterday, hmmmmm, it might be some sort of Hybrid? or a mutation which caused the really large leaves? i still don't think it's repens... Mabey Palustris? whats throwing me here is that these leaves seem a lot more rounded than any repens i have seen before...
