Leaves petiolate, lanceolate or elliptic-lanceolate, 8 – 65 × 5 – 15 mm, apex acute or narrowly obtuse, base attenuate, margin obscurely serrate-crenate, revolute, densely pubescent with sessile glands on both sides, lateral veins 3 – 5; petiole short, up to 5 mm long, pubescent Leaves lanceolate or elliptic-lanceolate, 8 - 65 x 5 - 15 mm, apex acute or narrowly obtuse, base attenuate, margin obscurely serrate-crenate, revolute, densely pubescent on both sides, hairs much denser on veins beneath, with sessile glands both sides, denser and much more prominent beneath, lateral veins 3 - 5; petiole short, up to 5 mm long, pubescent
Morphology Reproductive morphology Flowers Calyx
Calyx ovoid, 1.5 – 2 mm long at anthesis, tube villous; fruiting calyx 2 – 5 mm long; uppermost tooth oblong, or elliptic-oblong, slightly decurved, not concealing throat, apex rounded, villous with sessile glands; 4 remaining teeth subequal, apex obtuse or rounded, reflexed, arranged obliquely on throat at base of uppermost tooth; tube inflated below the middle, villous with hairs sometimes glandular Calyx ovoid, 1.5 - 2 mm long at anthesis, tube villous outside; fruiting calyx bilabiate; posterior lip 1-lobed, oblong or elliptic-oblong, 1.5 - 3 x 1 - 2.5 mm, slightly recurved, not concealing throat, apex rounded, villous with sessile glands outside; anterior lip shortly 4-lobed, apex obtuse or rounded, deflexed; tube 2.5 - 5 mm long, inflated below the middle, villous outside with hairs that are sometimes glandular
Morphology Reproductive morphology Flowers Corolla

Morphology Reproductive morphology Inflorescences
Inflorescence terminal, mostly simple, rarely branched; spike-like head cylindric, 10 – 75 × 8 – 12 mm; bracts ovate, pubescent, with sessile glands Inflorescence mostly simple, rarely branched; spikes cylindric, 10 - 75 x 8 - 12 mm; flowers condensed; bracts ovate, up to 4 x 5 mm, acuminate, concave, sessile, abaxial pubescent with sessile glands, adaxially glabrous
Morphology Stem
Stems woody at base, round-quadrangular, internodes very short below, elongated on upper part, densely brownish pubescent with short antrose hairs, with dense or sparse red or yellow sessile glands Stems woody at base, round-quadrangular, internodes very short below, elongated on upper part, densely brownish- pubescent with short antrorse hairs, with dense or sparse red or yellow sessile glands
Note
Anisochilus cambodianus is very similar to A. harmandii but differs in having a shorter and less distinct posterior calyx lip, shorter corolla, simple inflorescence, stems and branches densely brownish- pubescent rather than greyish-pubescent, a much stouter stem base, shorter internodes and the top of sterile branches always densely covered with leaves. Close to Anisochilus harmandii. The brownish pubescence on the stem separates it from the former.
Phenology
Flowering September-December, fruiting December.
