What flower is this? (34)

This flower has already featured on this blog, here. I found it in a swamp and wasn't prepared to get close enough for a better photo. It has five white petals, heavily fringed. The centre looks to be yellow with five stamen with brown crescent shaped anthers at the end.

The swamp was dotted with them, and they were gone again a few days later. They seem to grow from stems under the water and seem to be attached to those large leaves on which I expected to find a few frogs, but alas, I did not. Again, I was not game enough to test this theory by pulling a few from the depths.

What is it? I don't know, just yet.
