They're all anubias I think but I'm not sure how to tell them apart.... The smallest ones are usually 'nana petite', the first pic could be barteri, the others I really don't know.... Thing is, plants have a very different look depending on the conditions they're grown in, so your barteri might not look like my barteri, not to mention that all anubias kind of look the same anyway.

@LidijaPN ; is correct in saying they’re all Anubias. I’d go one step further and say they are all varieties of Anubias barteri, as are most Anubias varieties commonly available in the hobby. In their current condition it’s tough to tell if any are the full sized A. barteri var. barteri. Id guess the others are ‘nana’ & perhaps ‘nana petite’ with the exception of the last one. It is probably A. barteri var. glabra, which is also found in the hobby as A. minima. There are a couple other options the last one could be but if that was the case, that plant would be fairly young and have a lot of growing left to do.

You might consider attempting to clean the algae off them and give them some nutrients. Looks like they’ve been in a pretty low tech tank and ignored for a while.
