Hi Shirley, I think your first Cryptanthus is bivattatus. I must admit, I find it very hard to see much variation in most of the Cryptanthus genus, and I also have trouble keeping them alive. They kick along, looking well for a couple of years, and then just collapse. Your other plant grows into quite a large one! I have the variegated form, which has taken awhile to look nice, but has some size on it now. I'll have to take a pic.
The weather is pretty ordinary here right now, but hopefully it will clear a little bit to make the day a little more pleasant.
My other photo is of xNeophytum 'Firecracker' and the third is Aechmea orlndiana with a Tillandsia streptophylla above. Its finished flowering, but it has a couple of pups growing to replace it. I am hoping for seed, but doesn't appear to be any swelling of the pods yet.
