The Present study deals with the detailed pharmacognostical evaluation of Argyreia speciosa (Burm.f.) Bojer. (Convolvulaceae). Morphoanatomy of the root part have been studied with the aim to aid pharmacognostic and taxonomic species identification. The physicochemical, morphological and histological parameters presented in this paper may be proposed as parameters to establish the authenticity of A. speciosa and can possibly help to differentiate the drug from its other species.

Key words: Convolvulaceae, Pharmacognosy, Argyreia speciosa (Burm.f.) Bojer.
