Dont know why But I am not satisfied with id Nymphaea nouchali.
Since my Childhood we are playing with these plants and i clearly remember that there are atleast two distinct sp and may be three. we have some deep rice fields in about 20 acres in our village. Where we are watching these plants. Within a day or two i will try to visit again there to catch all 2/3 sp.
here i am attaching pics of one more sp/variety/biotype this was recently shot from village Pujam Karnal Haryana. This however can be N nauchali
for earliear sp i guess N candida. This time i skipped to catch disk. But not looks so tetragonus.
If any can have pics of N nauchali particularly pics of disk, LS and fruit. That may help.
In Both floras of Haryana reported are N nauchalui, N alba and N pubescence
