Dr. Vijayasankar, Dr. Santhosh,

In Flora of Mah., Vol IV the species Orthosiphon and Ocimum is mentioned in family Labiatae Lindley. I request you sir to kindly inform which name one has to follow  Lamiaceae  or Labiatea.Thank you.
 
Also if Sunjoy has taken these pics in SGNP than it is either O.Pallida or O. thymiflorus.
 
O.Pallida is more likely because the corolla tube is nearly equalling the calyx. 
If leaves are  with a petiole 1 -4 cm, than it is O.thymiflorus.  
 
regards,
Rashida.

Many thanks.
Except for pics 1 & 2 (Flower-Unid 1. 2), the rest of the photographs were taken in Sanjay Gandhi National Park.

Dear Rashida ji & all,

As per the rules of ICBN (International Code of Botanical Nomenclature), the family names should end with aceae. However, the following eight families are exceptions and their old names can ALSO be used (only for these 8) because of their popularity and very long usage. You can use either Labiatae or Lamiaceae, both are correct. The exceptions are:

Labiatae / Lamiaceae
Cruciferae / Brassicaceae
Graminae / Poaceae
Leguminosae / Papilionaceae / Fabaceae
Guttiferae / Clusiaceae
Umbelliferae / Apiaceae
Compositae / Asteraceae
Palmae / Arecaceae

One may use Papilionaceae as alternate name for Fabaceae, only if we include only papilionaceous members in the family (upgrading Faboideae to family level).

Dear sir,
Are you sure that the first one is 'Asystasia gangetica'? I have not
seen the species in purple flowers [rather cream or yellow colored].
Am based on Chennai.
