Following APG IV, the family includes the following families previously distinguished:
Genera on Pl@ntUse
Key of subtribe Plectranthinae
according to Paton et al. (2019).
|1 Corolla actinomorphic, or almost so, stamens spreading not declinate||Tetradenia|
|1 Corolla strongly zygomorphic, stamens declinate||2|
|2 Lateral lobes of the corolla deflexed towards the anterior lobe||Thorncroftia|
|2 Lateral lobes of the corolla ascending towards the median lobes of the posterior lip or horizontal and held between the anterior lobe and median lobes of the posterior lip||3|
|3 Posterior lip of corolla truncate, lateral lobes usually horizontal, short, held between the anterior lobe and median lobes of the posterior lip||Capitanopsis|
|3 Posterior lip of corolla not truncate, diverging from anterior lip of the corolla, with lateral lobes usually ascending and close to median lobes of posterior lip||4|
|4 Calyx basally circumscissile; tube distally dorsiventrally flattened||Aeollanthus|
|4 Calyx very rarely circumscissile; tube not dorsiventrally flattened||5|
|5 Calyx 3-lobed (1 upper, 2 lower), expanded and membranous in fruit||Alvesia|
|5 Calyx 5-lobed (1 upper, 4 lower, or actinomorphic), rarely expanded and membranous in fruit||6|
|6 Calyx with pedicel attached asymmetrically to the base of the calyx tube, opposite the posterior lip; corolla with upper (posterior) lip shorter than lower (anterior), rarely subequally lobed||Coleus|
|6 Calyx with pedicel attached symmetrically to the base of the calyx tube, not opposite the upper lip, corolla lobes more or less equal in length||7|
|7 Calyx throat truncate with lateral lobes of the calyx held midway between the uppermost and lowermost lobes; corolla tube usually sigmoid, parallel-sided at base, dilating towards throat||Equilabium|
|7 Calyx throat oblique with lateral lobes of the calyx held closer to the lowermost pair of lobes than the upper lobe; corolla tube straight or curved downwards, usually gibbous, saccate or shortly spurred at base||Plectranthus|
