The aerial parts of Coldenia procumbens Linn. (Boraginaceae) are used in indigenous systems of medicine. The market sample is in the form of small pieces or nearly powdered, from which the morphological and anatomical characters are unable to study for the identification and conformation of its authenticity. The present study of physicochemical characteristics like physical constant values, behavior with different chemical reagents, fluorescent behavior and qualitative phytochemical studies were useful to identify the market sample even in the powdered form.
