Re: lotus? maculata? zenkeri?

The Tropica site lists the plant as Nymphaea lotus
(zenkeri).  I believe it used to just say zenkeri. 
Doesn't the Baensch Atlas also give this name?  

How do you tell the difference between zenkeri and
maculata?  I'm assuming that zenkeri is the usual
mottled red or green one.

Right.  I'm just saying that lotus has been used as a
species name for a Nymphaea species.
