Abstract: Cordia myxa L. (family: Boraginaceae). Is a medium sized deciduous tree. It is distributed in tropical and sub-tropical regions. The present study deals with macro- and micro-morphological investigation of C. myxa leaves, which will be greatly helpful in identification and authentication of this plant. The leaf is microscopically characterized by the presence of anomocytic stomata, non-glandular hairs and cystolith cell containing calcium carbonate.
