You cannot differentiate between them looking at submerged leaves. The leaf form and color intensity ( though red in both cases) will depend on growing conditions.
Tiger Lotus gives out White (Ivory) flowers, where as N rubra will give out pink to reddish flowers depending on soil conditions.
I have flowered Tiger Lotus in my Aquarium and flowered N. rubra ( what I believe is N. rubra as I got it, I got only pink flowers, but where I got it from, the plant was putting out reddish flowers ) in an out door container.
Nymphera lotus "zenkeri" is a cultivar from Tropica, the leaves almost always get to a purplish red. They are not available now in the true form, except from Tropica direct.
Tiger Lotus is African Tiger "lotus" Lily and the two are different.
