A peculiar form of htis species having leaves smaller than usual, and nearly all of hem with more or less imbricate lobes. The flowers,submerged leaves and carpels are those of typical peltatus, but the lower fruiting pedicles are sometimes8, or even 10 cm. in length. Rather too robust for Hiern's f. elongatus.
