Pharmacognostical parameters for the leaves of Anisomeles indica Linn. (Labiatae) were studied with the aim of drawing the Pharmacognostical standards for this species. Macroscopical and microscopical characters, physio-chemical constants, quantitative microscopy parameters, extractive values with different solvents, fluorescence analysis of extracts, its reaction after treatment with chemical reagents under visible light and UV light at 254 nm and 366 nm. Preliminary phytochemical screening on the leaves Anisomeles indica was also studied. Caryophyllaceous stomata (in the upper and lower epidermis), glandular, non-glandular trichomes and starch grains were identified. The determination of these characters will help future researchers in their Phytochemical as well as Pharmacological analysis of this species.

Key words : Anisomeles indica Linn., Chemo-microscopy, Evaluation, Macroscopy, Micrometry, Pharmacognosy.
