American lotus flower (Nelumbo lutea: Nelumbonaceae) on the second day of anthesis, showing a central, gynoecial receptacle and several whorls of dehiscent stamens. Historically, Nelumbo has been considered to be closely related to Nymphaeales (water lilies); however, new systematic work has allied the genus with lower eudicots.
