Abstract: The Crotalaria burhia Buch.-Ham. (Fabaceae), commonly known as jhamo and khip, is an undershurb, fibrous plant, traditionally used in the treatment of gout, hydrophobia and swelling. Present study assumes singular significance, and it is supposed to contribute a great deal to the existing literature. The present investigation was, therefore, undertaken to determine the requisite pharmacognostical standards for standardization of the plant material. Various investigations like organoleptic characters, microscopic study, physicochemical standards, fluorescence analysis, preliminary phytochemical screening and chromatographic study of the plant were carried out, and the salient qualitative parameters were reported. These studies provided referential information for correct identification and standardization of this plant material. These information will also be helpful to differentiate Crotalaria burhia from the closely related other species of Crotalaria.
