Calyx campanulate, inconspicuously 10-veined, apex netted; teeth 5, equal, straight, slightly dilated in fruit. Corolla 2-lipped; tube as long as calyx, finely pilose annulate inside; upper lip erect, margin entire, slightly concave; lower lip longer, spreading, 3-lobed; middle lobe largest, emarginate or 2-lobulate. Stamens 4, exserted, didynamous, anterior 2 usually longer; anterior anthers transversely 2-celled, posterior anthers 1-celled. Style apex 2-cleft, lobes subulate, subequal. Disc cupulate, crenate.

Subsequent authors (Bakhuizen van den Brink, Fl. Java 2: 624. 1965; Keng, Fl. Males. ser. 1, 8: 328. 1978) have rejected Rothmaler's claim (Repert. Spec. Nov. Regni Veg. 53: 12. 1944) that the type of Epimeredi is an Anisomeles.
