identify this crypt please:

I just finished re-planting my 55 gallon. The last piece of my puzzle was six cryptocoryne parva plants which took me a while to find. I received them today and I have to say I'm disappointed:

First, the leaves had all kinds of holed in them like they were eaten by caterpillars in mid spring! Most importantly I don't think they sent me the correct crypt.

These were 6"-8" tall. I'm pretty sure the parva verson is very very short. I emailed customer service but haven't heard from them yet. I don't expect to until next week.

Here is a pic of one of the shortest of the six I received.

Definitely not parva, and those leaves look like emersed growth to me. I can't ID it for you other than confirm that it isn't parva.

Bonus picture is of my parva for comparison
