Thanks Janet to warn me to be cautious with the specie name!
The picture on Wiki of Pseuderanthemum reticulatum looks a bit different, and probably is more reliable that the pics I found..I have googled all the others from the list you gave, but many have no images available..
Better keep it to Pseuderanthemum sp.! Smiling
