Annotation: Note from IPNI under Heimia myrtifolius Cham. & Schltdl.: "Based on 2 characters mentioned for Lythrum apetalum Spreng. (petals 0 & stamens 6) and Heimia (petals 6 & stamens 12), A. Lourteig (Taxon 38: 279-280. 1989) argued that by implication (i.e., petal & stamen nos.), Cham. & Schltdl. excluded the type of L. apetalum from H. myrtifolia and the latter name is legitimate (rejected here)."
