This is my picture of E. stellata which has much thinner leaves.
Are you saying that the 'broad leaf' variety is called P. stellatus while the regular is called E. stellata? I thought both of the names changed to P. stellatus..? :?

I don't think they ever did change its name. The plant was always called Pogostemon stellatus in scientific circles, but the aquarium hobby was calling it Eusteralis stellata instead. The genus name Eusteralis has been defunct for a while now.

There was a great discussion on this in the APD.
