Anisomeles heyneana Benth. Plantae Asiaticae Rariores 1: 59 (1830).

Very strangely, Anisomeles should mean UNEQUAL MELON!! I dont know if
I am right with this.
heyneana should be named after either of the three Heyne, dont know which one :p
B.Heyne - Benjamin Heyne 1770-1819; F.Heyne - Friedrich Adolf Heyne
1760-1826; K.Heyne

Regards
Pankaj
