Abstract: The aquatic herb Villarsia aurantiaca Ridl. ex C. B. Clarke, endemic to Peninsular Thailand and Malaysia, is typified and shown to be synonymous with Nymphoides aurantiaca (Dalzell) Kuntze though heterotypic. Consequently the genus Villarsia is known in Malesia by the single species V exiliflora F. Muell. from the south of New Guinea. Some authors have also placed V exiliflora in Nymphoides. Villarsia thus consists of some twelve Australasian species with two outliers: one species in South Africa (V. capensis (Houtt.) Merr.) and one in mainland Indochina (V. cambodiana Hance).
