Taxonomic notes
This taxon is unclear. When Braun described it in 1835, he did not separate N. syncarpa and N. opaca. N. opaca was a variety of N. syncarpa. The first to do this for this taxon is Migula in 1897, an he is followed here. This is also accepted by Blümel (2003). - (25 Feb 2010) -

General environment
This is a freshwater species.

No distributions recorded
