Bucephalandra Identification

Can anyone ID this buce?






Bump: I just got it recently and it had some holes in the leaves but I'm nursing it back to health and trying to find out which buce it is.

The general consensus is that there are so many similar looking buce they are almost impossible to identify.

Please don't sell Bucephalandra as a specific variety once the ID is lost. The seller did the right thing by selling it as an unknown variety and it should forever remain as an 'unknown' variety.

The same holds true for wild collected crypts that have an unknown collection location.
My personal opinion is that half or more of the varieties are completely made up, and half of the buce that get sold are probably misidentified - but that is a whole other bag of worms.

Awesome thanks for the help!
