Anisochilus Wall. ex Benth., Edwards's Bot. Reg. 15: t. 1300 (1830)

Type: Anisochilus carnosus (L.f.) Wall. ex Benth.

Note: Anisochilus siamensis is an unplaced or dubious name according to Suddee & Paton, (2009) and has not been subject to analysis by Paton et al., (2019). It is left here by Govaerts et al. (2020) even though the type species is transferred to Coleus strobilifer (Roxb.) A.J.Paton (2019), and the genus is now proposed to be in synonymy with Coleus s.l. (Paton et al., 2019).

Anisochilus is a genus in the family Lamiaceae, commonly called as Kapuri [2] first described in 1830. It is native to China, the Indian Subcontinent, and Indochina.[1][3][4] Has healing properties that deal with treatment for ailments know as gastric ulcer and helps with dermis issues.[5] Anisochilus also has active properties such as camphor, leutiolin, and apigenin. A new hygrine-like compound has been found within the DNA of this plant.[6]
