The Lamiaceae Family was named and described by Ivan Ivanovič Martinov in Tekhno-Botanicheskīĭ Slovarʹ in 1820.

This family includes many well-known and loved genera many people use every day.

Plants of the World Online lists 237 accepted genera in this family commonly known as the mint or deadnettle family. The Wikipedia article says the World Checklist of Selected Plant Families lists 7,534 species in this family (the article was last edited on October 13, 2017).

The 2013 version of The Plant List named 245 genera in this family plus a number of unresolved names. Of the total accepted genera, there were a total of 7,886 accepted species (plus 716 accepted infraspecific names), a total of 20,616 synonyms (including infraspecific names), plus 1527 unresolved species. Well, The Plant List is no longer maintained but it does show progress when you compare it to current information.
