Anisomeles is a mint, and a member of subfamily Lamioideae, different from Salvia, which belongs to subfamily Nepetoideae.

Other Salvia mimics belong to subfamily Lamiales include Phlomis (Jerusalen Sage)

Order Lamiales includes a lor of other plant families with labiate flowers that can mimic Salvia, like the Acantaceae and Gesneriaceae

The Wiki entry on the Lamiaceae is pretty interesting:
