Morphologically Tincspora sinensis (Lour.) Merrill is differentiated from T. cordifolia Miers. Only by the tomentose leaves. The present anatomical study aids in differentiating pieces of woods of T. sinensis from those of T. cordifolia which is often mixed as adulterant or substitute for T. cordifolia in several Ayurvedic compound preparations.
