Well since no one else has replied, I'll give it a try.

To me it looks like one of the C. Wendtii varieties, maybe Brown or Tropica?
But to get a positive Id on it you'll want to let it grow out a little, as there are so many species in the Crypt family that look vary similar when they're small; Not to mention the varieties in each of those species.
But that aside all the they're a great and undemanding plant, especially with good root feeding.
