Limnobium L.C. Richard. Frog's-bit.

A genus of 1-2 species, of se. North America and tropical America. Bernardini & Lucchese (2018) follow others in suggesting the possibility of including Limnobium in Hydrocharis, based on phylogenetic sister status and similar morphology.

ID notes: This species is often free-floating, the leaves with prominently large cells below.
