Flower-Visiting Insects
of White Water Lily

Nymphaea tuberosa (White Water Lily)
(Bees collect pollen, flies feed on pollen, the weevil gnaws on floral tissue; some insects become dead on the flower and they are non-pollinating. Although Robertson doesn't list them as such, Hylaeus nelumbonis, Lasioglossum nelumbonis, and Lasioglossum nymphaearum are oligolectic on species of the Water Lily family; a scientific synonym of White Water Lily is Nymphaea odorata tuberosa.)
