Can anyone ID this native plant?

These plants have been growing partially sumberged in a pond at work. These particular plants were intertwined in some watercress. The submerged leaves are the same shape as the emergent ones. Kinda reminds me of a ludwigia, any ideas? The plants trail along the surface with the lower leaves submerged.

I'm not sure what it is, but I'd be suprised if it will completely adapt to submersed life. Have you tried it under water yet?
