This paper deals with the detailed pharmacognostical evaluation of the crude drug Phyllanthus reticulatus Poir. (Euphrobiaceae). Morphoanatomy of the entire plant have been studied with the aim to aid pharmacognostic and taxonomic species identification using light and confocal microscopy, WHO recommended physico-chemical determinations and authentic phytochemical procedures. The physico-chemical, morphological and histological parameters presented in this paper may be proposed as parameters to establish the authenticity of P. reticulatus and can possibly help to differentiate the drug from its other species. © Copyright 2009 Phcog.net.
