    I bought this plant from an auction labeled as narrow leaf Anubias. But I suspect that it is mis labeled. The leaves are softer and lighter green than the Anubias I am familiar with. It has soft and dense fibrous root with no visible rhizome which could yet to be developed because the plants are small (2-3 inch tall). What species is it if it is not Anubias?

    I would guess that it is a Cryptocryne of some sort.

    Definitely a Cryptocoryne, maybe C. willisii

    Yes, it does look like a C. willisii, but could also be a closely related C. Pavar.
