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 x rubrodisca is recognized as a hybrid with the hybrid formula N. lutea ssp. pumila x N. lutea ssp. variegata. Mitchell and Beal (1979) follow this taxonomy. Mitchell and Tucker (1997) raised this taxon to the specific level (N. rubrodisca) and treated it as a non-hybrid taxon. A recent study by Padgett et al. (1998) lends support to the treatment of this taxon as a hybrid between N. microphylla and N. variegata based on morphology, molecular work, and pollen viability.
Status:Native, S3S5 (State Rank)
