Sources were Thinternet, my old notes and a copy of 'Encyclopedia of Aquarium Plants', by Peter Hiscock.

Would common names be useful? Given that the 'common' names I might use may differ from those used in other countries, I am thinking it may be easier just to stick with the Latin. ;)
 
I think common names would be helpful. Perhaps you could add the common names, but note that common names vary from country to country?

Really nice list, very well done and informative!

How do you possibly find the majority of these plants? I’m seeing local shops offer very few selections, maybe half a dozen at best. More from online vendors, but still limited selections.
