Taxonomic Notes:Beal's (1956) monograph on Nuphar lumps all Nuphar species under one variable N. lutea with numerous taxa recognized at the subspecific level. In Beal's treatment, Nuphar microphylla is recognized as N. lutea ssp. pumila. Mitchell and Beal (1979) follow this taxonomy. Mitchell and Tucker (1997) resurrected many of the lumped taxa and treated them at the specific level including N. microphylla. Padgett (2007), with evidence from morphology and molecular work, supports the taxonomy followed by Mitchell and Tucker. The closely related N. pumila of Europe and Asia is lumped together with N. microphylla by Beal (1956) but is considered distinct by Padgett (1998, 2007) although he acknowledges their close relationship. We follow Padgett (1998, 2007) and recognize the two as distinct with only N. microphylla known from New York.
