We do for genus Nymphaea Lin. I don't know how many other genera, if any, could be included. Maybe @Carolyn22 or @psa can clarify.

Thanks Evan ... I don't know one from another but I had two photo's I took last summer in San Diego and was going to add them to the database. I have no idea if they are in genus Nymphaea or not ... posted the pic's over on the plant ID forum so maybe someone will recognize them. Thanks again!

I am not very good with the different classifications for plants. I know there are different family names and genera.

This is what I found on Wikipedia.

Lin - I will see if I can find your posting on the ID forum.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!

I always kind of liked the diagram here:

Note the Nelumbo (Lotus) and Nymphoides in boxes on the right (not in the image), as well.

Between these is pretty much everything that might be called a water lily. I don't think I have any rights to most of these genera in the database, though.
