  From  Webster's  Revised  Unabridged  Dictionary  (1913)  [web1913]: 
 
  Nymphaea  \Nym*ph[ae]"a\,  n.  [L.,  the  water  lily,  Gr  ?.]  (Bot.) 
  A  genus  of  aquatic  plants  having  showy  flowers  (white,  blue, 
  pink,  or  yellow,  often  fragrant),  including  the  white  water 
  lily  and  the  Egyptia  lotus. 
 
  Note:  Recent  critics  have  endeavored  to  show  that  this  genus 
  should  be  called  {Castalia},  and  the  name  {Nymph[ae]a} 
  transferred  to  what  is  now  known  as  {Nuphar}.
