#4 I don't think is didiplis.. not sure exactly what it is, but didiplis leaves grow in a distinctive shape along the stem, like each node is in the shape of a "plus sign" and they spiral up the stem, like this:

Hard to explain. But I don't think that's didiplis. In fact, it looks more like pogostemon stellatus under low light or something like that?

#6 is rotala rotundifolia.

#8 is definitely some kind of ludwigia.

Not sure about #3.

Nice!

Only change I'd make is number three. I'd say Ludwigia brevipes before I'd look towards a Nesaea sp.

Definetly not Ovalis.. ovalis has very round leaves. I am sure there is a photo of ovalis in the Planted Tank database. Ovalis also has a very distinctive color that is usally a light pink/salmon. The leaves are much smaller, less than half the size of repens, and the stems are extremely thin. Its a very delicate looking plant. Sometimes it will darken up but its more often than not light pink.

Arcuata has roundish leaves only in its emersed growth form, and its solid green in that form. Submersed, the leaves become extremely needle like and dark red.

Here is arcuata emersed:




Here it is submersed


Here is Ludwigia ovalis



Your plant looks like normal Ludwigia repens to me
