The study was to determine the micromorphological characters of Cleome felina L. f. The results revealed the presence of anomocytic stomata, multicellular and glandular trichomes in the leaves. The transverse section of stem shows the myrosin cell and idioblast sac in the pith region. The vessels are solitary, increases in diameter from centre to periphery noted in transverse section of root. The powder microscopy reveals the epidermal trichome, sclereids and vessel elements. The pharmacognostical standards of C. felina could be useful for the completion of a suitable monograph for its proper identification, determination of its quality, purity and detection of nature of adulteration.
