Aquatic plant Species of the World

'O' Plants

The unusual Australian plant Ondinea purpurae which looks like an Aponogeton but has a purple flower similar to Barclaya longifolia was found in 2009 to be, surprisingly, just another species of Nymphaea and became Nymphaea ondinea. The genus is included for completeness although is deprecated.


Ottelia muricata

Another odd and ancient plant transitional between lilies and something like Aponogeton and Ondinea.
