I can't remember the names of these plants. If you guys could help me identify the crypt species that i have and the plant behind it that would help me out a lot.

The leaves are a thinner and pointier than hygro sunset. From what i remember the name had something with sol polio or something like that.

Thanks, but Cavan's ID's always reign superior! 'Sao Paulo' and 'Kawagoeanum' can sometimes be hard to tell apart. I do know that the first tends to have broader leaves than the second. Any other major differences between the two that you can suggest Cavan?

Yeah that's true. It was sold to me as sao paulo but it easily could have been sold to me wrongly identified.

Here is another picture if this helps

looks more like kawagoeanum

Color can be extremely variable based on conditions.

Even so, the less rigid stem and pink/orange combination gives it away. Many differences emersed/in flower as well of course.
