Default Aponogeton ulvaceus flowers!

So an Aponogeton ulvaceus bulb that I planted less than 2 weeks ago decided to go crazy on me and has just grown in at ridiculous speeds and has already started to flower for me.

BUT, the flowers look odd. It doesn't look like the reference images so I'm wondering if this is a hybrid or if the inflorescence just needs to mature a little more. What do y'all think?

One more question, does this species or are Aponogetons in general self fertile? I imagine they're also polycarpic as well.
