Lilaeopsis mauritiana is an endemic plant of the island of Mauritius. This species was first collected for aquaristic purposes in 1992, and in 1995, the aquatic plant nursery Tropica introduced it to the market under the name Lilaeopsis sp. "Mauritius". Only later on (in 1999) it was described as the new species L. mauritiana.
From those Lilaeopsis species in cultivation in the hobby up to now, L. mauritiana is the one with the narrowest leaves.
