Recent work on Nymphaea ampla (Salisb.) DC. s.l. in tropical America suggests that two species should be distinguished within this broadly circumscribed taxon, which formerly has mostly been treated to include all of the native tropical diurnally flowering water-lilies of Central and South America and the Antilles. The two species are distinguished by their leaf margins, venation pattern, and coloration; by the number of flower parts; and by seed morphology. To determine proper nomenclature for the two recognized species, the typification of all relevant names is investigated. The typification of several names is reported, including the two names proposed for acceptance: N. ampla for a species of Mexico, Mesoamerica, and the Greater Antilles and N. pulchella DC. for a species from southern and central Mexico, southern Mesoamerica, South America, and the Greater and Lesser Antilles.
