Garg ji
This one is Nymphoides cristata with white flowers with yellow centre, lacking the fringed margin of N. indica.

N. hydrophylla as per eflora of China has totally white flowers and campanulate corolla. Here yellow centre can be clearly seen as in N. cristata.

Madhuri ji,
in North India Kumudni is Neel Kamal. And the folk lore is that it blooms at moon rise.
Promila

Shrikant ji
If the two are synonyms then of course N. hydrophylla should be the correct because Lour. (1790) antedates Roxb (1798 or 1799) for basionym. Then of course our identifications match.

It would, however, interesting to know the date of publication  BSI monograph, because both Flora of China (published 1994 onwards) and GRIN record (verified in 2006) the two are treated as distinct species. In that case above plant should be N. cristata. I am sure Tanay will do this research for us.

cristatum..or N.cristata
