Requesting to please ID this plant with white flowers captured in a cultivated garden in Mumbai in June 2013. The plant was a water plant.

Alisma species, more possibly A. plantago-aquatica.

To me the white flowers look like Echinodarus palaefolius, Mexican Sword Plant.

The aquatic plant with long leaves is something else.

efi page on Alisma plantago-aquatica & Echinodorus palaefolius

Does not look like Alisma plantago-aquatica

Ottelia alismoides (L.) Pers.

Looks different as per images and details at Ottelia alismoides

It is correctly placed, but the species look different from the two in our database at Echinodorus

The leaves in the pics do not resemble those of Ottelia alismoides.
I am positive that the leaves and flowers belong to the same plant though.
