Closely related to Typha minima, this species is treated as T. minima by Govaerts (2010. World Checklist of Typhaceae. The Board of Trustees of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. Published on the Internet; accessed 16 Feb 2010). Further work is needed to determine the relationships between these two taxa.
