Yes.
Epilobium is a large sp.
Quote wiki....

"The National Museum of Natural History recognizes an intermediate number of about 175 species in 10 sections.

They are mostly herbaceous plants, either annual or perennial; a few are subshrubs. The leaves are mostly opposite or whorled, alternate in a few species, simple, and ovate to lanceolate in shape. The flowers have four petals often notched.[4]"

So in essence this would be a good starting point for identifying willowherb.

Thanks SIlverSurfer......Really is much appreciated. Need to build up my plant knowledge.
