Nymphaea Ampla is similar to nymphaea caerulea (sacred blue waterlily) both in appearance and in its traditional use. Ampla is reported to have some of the same alkaloids in the roots and bulbs. Nymphaea Ampla is also referred to as white lotus, although it is a waterlily. This is perhaps because lotus also has similar properties and traditional use as well as a similar appearance. http://www.pubmedcentral.nih.gov/articlerender.fcgi?artid=1079300
The seeds of nymphaea are drastically smaller than those of nelumbo. The petals are also skinnier which makes them appear pointy and triangular, whereas those of nelumbo are fatter and rounder.
