Scientific NameCommon NameSummary
Nuphar polysepalaYellow Pond-lilyCommon aquatic plant of shallow lake margins and bog ponds with round floating leaves and large showy yellow flowers. A few collections spanning the full region, though significant gaps (presumably due to lack of collecting effort rather than absence).
Nymphaea odorataFragrant WaterlilyKnown from a single pond in Indian River valley. There is evidence to suggest that its presence is due to a planting by E. W. Merrill in the early 1900s.
Nymphaea tetragonaPygmy WaterlilyOnly two collections from the region in ARCTOS, both from the southern portion on islands near the mainland.
