The Australian Plant Name Index (APNI) is a tool for the botanical community that deals with plant names and their usage in the scientific literature, whether as a current name or synonym. APNI does not recommend any particular taxonomy or nomenclature. For a listing of currently accepted scientific names for the Australian vascular flora, please use the Australian Plant Census (APC) link above.
Etymology: "The genus is named in honour of Dr Philip Cantino, Ohio, whose researches on Lamiaceae, especially the delimitation of its suprageneric taxa and his studies on the distinguishing characters between this family and the Verbenaceae, have greatly advanced our understanding of the group."
