Please ID these 2 plants. 1 stem, 1 crypt

Looking for some help IDing a couple of plants I've had for a while. Forgot the names.

I agree with the wendtii mi oya and rotala rotundifola. I have both. Though I admit your pics of the rotala look slightly more rounded than mine.

Second is probably C. beckettii

After looking at a ton of pics online I agree. Thank you. Thanks for that link too.

The pic of the stem plant might be deceiving. It was hard to get a good pic, they're buried in the back of the tank. The leaves of the stem plant are short and wide. Biggest leaves are maybe an inch long, can't really see the veins. I believe R. macandra is correct.

The crypt doesn't have that really wrinkled look of wendtii. I thought it might have been undulata after looking at more pics but I can't tell the difference between beckettii and undulata. I'll go with becketti.

Thanks everyone.
