MBNN Fortnight-sk15 Hooghly-sk-Oct-36 (Nymphaeaceae) A Query : 3 posts by 2 authors.
How to differentiate Nymphaea micrantha Perr. & Guill. from Nymphaea caerulea Savigny?
Nymphaea caerulea Savigny
Leaves entire or slightly wavy at base, orbicular or ovate-orbicular, narrowly peltate, becoming 30 to 40 cm. in diameter; green above; under surface green with small dark purple spots, purplish all round near margin. Flowers 7 to 15 cm. across, open from 7.30 a. m. to 12 m. Buds conical. Sepals thickly marked with black lines and dots. Petals 14 to 20, lanceolate, light blue above, lower half dull white. Stamens 50 to 73; appendage long (0.5 cm. on outermost stamens), slender, pale blue
Nymphaea micrantha Guillemin & Perrottet
Leaves small, round-cordate, peltate, entire, petiolate ; petioles very long, slender ; lobes divaricate, acuminate ; under surface reddish, marked with violet-black dots ; upper surface glabrous, pale green, in mature plants bulbiferous at the summit of the petiole ; stigmatic rays 15.
Notes. — Hooker & Thomson record, and the herbaria bear them out, that no sharp line could be drawn between the varieties of this species as it occurs in India, but they were certainly wrong in including the African plants. The three extreme Indian forms are themselves fairly recognizable. The margin of the leaf may be al- most entire. The pustules so evident on the leaf of our N. versicolor cultivated from seeds sent by Mr. Gollan of Saharanpur, India, may be present at times in the other varieties. Our plant also had a great number of bulbils on the caudex, as shown in several herbarium specimens both of blue and pink forms.
Thank you very much ...
As per descriptions you have provided here I understand that the underside of leaves should be regarded as an easily recognizable KEY to identify one from another-
(i) under surface green with purple spots = caerulea
(ii) under surface reddish with violet-black dots = micrantha

Water lily at Maharashtra Nature Park in Mumbai on 12/8/12
Id please.
Glorious pictures ... this looks like Nymphaea caerulea...
Nymphaea species in efi
From all available information (to me;of course) there is nothing to point out and substantiate that this is not Nymphea caerula. I endorse ...
I could not find difference between Nymphaea caerulea and Nymphaea micrantha on net except for the under surface of the leaves being green in the former and reddish in the later as per detailed description at MBNN Fortnight-sk15 Hooghly-sk-Oct-36 (Nymphaeaceae) A Query
However, one reliable site lists both of these separately. Based on the images I will go for Nymphaea micrantha :

Nice color, pics...
but dont yoiu think it seems as if the flower is sinking?
I wonder why?
Yes Mam many flowers were in sinking state reason is not understandable to me also
... may be some genetic problem of short stalk...that is keeping the flower low???/
Since this is in a botanical garden some botanist there can do a porject???
You can suggest it??
Or something as simple as water density.. solutes or temperature based ??/
Do you know any of the bortanists there, may be this can be short summer project for a student??
There is almost no Botanist in HAU mainly Plant physiologist there.
Flowers may be sinking for one very simple reason :)
RISE IN THE WATER LEVEL OF THE RESERVOIR OR CONTAINER!!
As it is evident from the pics that leaves and flowers are healthy and even the leaves are sinking. Usually in both water Lilly and Lotus floral stalk length depends on the depth of the pond/reservoir, I assume.
... you may be right. Yes ... CCSHAU is one the Biggest Agricultural University in Asia Funded by State as well as Center Govt. Its library is considered as biggest in India after IARI New Delhi with Excellant xerox and Computer facility are available here. This University have about 9600 Acres of area.

Nymphaea nouchali Burm.f. ... family: Nymphaeaceae 
કુમુદ refers to the night-blooming white water-lily. The blue-flowered, day-blooming Nymphaea nouchali is known as નીલ કમલ (કમળ) in Gujarati. Also simply known as કમળ in Gujarati. In વનસ્પતિશાસ્ત્ર (1966), the pioneering botanist Jayakrishna Indraji has documented a curious name of this plant, કાળાં કમલ, apparently alluding to its black tuberous rhizomes. JI refers to the night-blooming lotus & water-lily plants as ચંદ્રવિકાશી કમળ and to the day-blooming as સૂર્યવિકાશી કમળ
A clarification on the year of publication of વનસ્પતિશાસ્ત્ર, it was published in AD 1910. In my previous email, I inadvertently typed the Vikram Samvat year mentioned in the book.
Thanks very much ...  for the information and clarity on names of water lily. Thus કમળ kamal, in Gujarati, is a generic name for both: lotus as well as water lily. I will revise my notes with all the names and the info.
very nice to know
After independence it seems our languages have become quite innovative...
niteblooming is chandravikasi... and day blooming is suryavikasi
i marvel at this .. and love it.. very apt ,appropriate and quite poetic..
could you please send me full citation of this book?
that includes publishers name and town
Full address if available
I would certainly like to buy it
I am referring to the original first edition (1000 copies were printed in 1910) which was generously gifted to me by a family friend in Kachchh. It is a very well-known book in Gujarati circles. Has been reprinted by Pravin Prakashan, Rajkot. I don't have their contact details at hand.
so the indian adjectives were made prior to throwing off of the yoke... wonderful
I am glad to know
gujarati writers were resourceful did very well by the language
right now I am reading a book of synopsis of Gujarati literature (written in english) by Dr. Nalin Patel..
quite and eye opener.
I have been trying to know what actually nouchali mean, but can't find any reference. Even N.L.Burman didn't mention this name anywhere in his book (as far as I can find). This word must be name of a guy and most likely from your area or a bit lower in Coromandel. Some old names are hard to find but you can look out for variants of the name in the telephone directory :)
I love etymology !!!
And very nice pic for sure. Pink colours are hard to capture, in fact I have never seen Nymphaea of this color !!
In hindi it is Kumudni.
Yes Kamal for Lotus and Kumud for Lily.

As stamen are more than 50, compared to 10 to 30 in Nymphaea nouchali, image should be of Nymphaea micrantha Perr. & Guill. as per images and references herein.

Another tiny Water Lily seen on the same day.
Kindly id.
Nymphaea species in eFloraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ Biotik/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available on net)
I simply do not know. Frankly speaking ..., I do not think it is possible to id such cultivars to the species level. Even genus can be wrong. I was thinking if there is any member from other genus/genera that looks like Nymphaea. And I found a lot of info, example -
Thank you
Thanks for the links. Will go through them.
I fully agree with ... remarks.  


I'm agree with the statement that through images it is difficult to identify a commercial variety due to presence of number of hybrids and cultivars of same species or interspecies.



At present there are eight (08) genera and 70 accepted species under family Nymphaeaceae

Barclaya Wallich (02 species)
Euryale Salisbury (01 species)
Hydrostemma Wallich (01 species)
Nuphar Smith (18 species)
Nymphaea Linnaeus (44 species)
Nymphozanthus Richard (01 species)
Ropalon Rafinesque (01 species)
Victoria Lindley (02 species)
Here in the attached weblinks (by ...) we see subgenera or subgenus of genus Nymphaea, and the subgenus is one of the possible subdivisions of a genus (according to International Code of Botanical Nomenclature - ICBN). Where, it is not mandatory to use subgenus as generic epithet.
Further, more details are available at ICBN, Chapter III, section 3, article 21.
Since, there are number of cultivars/hybrids under Nymphaea species (Intersubgeneric cross - means cross between subgenera/species of different subgenera (5 listed) of same genus as in attached .pdf file). So, it is wrong to say that there are other genera look like Nymphaea, and we can say that generated thing is a hybrid of different subgenera of same genus unless it is authenticated as new species by ICBN.
It should be Nymphaea micrantha Perr. & Guill. as per images and references herein.

You have to correct this.  

Not corrected so far in FOI.
