Contributor Text: I.C. Hedge
Flower/Fruit: Fl. Per.: August-September.
Type: Type: "Hab. in Nepaul?"
Distribution: Distribution: Pakistan, Kashmir, Himalayas to Bhutan.
Comment/Acknowledgements: A distinct species on account of the large ovate, petiolate leaves, the tendency to secund-flowered cymes and the almost absent upper lobe of the corolla. The latter feature is the main diagnostic character of the genus whose generic allies are uncertain, but possibly Anisomeles is its nearest neighbour.
