Species, genera & family pages of‎‎‎Pontederiaceae‎ are now with comparative images. On clicking the link of species, one can check the complete details.

May I request you to pl. go through & point out mistakes, if any. I hope this will aid in identifications in future. If anybody can send images of other species of this family (for incorporation in the website), if any, or can identify unidentified/ wrongly identified images, it will be really nice.
