This article presents an identity based pharmacognostical study of the stem of the crude drug Indigofera glandulifera Linn. (Papilionaceae). Morphoanatomy of the stem was studied using light and confocal microscopy, World Health Organization guidelines on quality control methods for medicinal plant materials. The physico-chemical, morphological, histological parameters presented in this paper may be proposed as parameters to establish the authenticity of I. glandulifera and can possibly help to differentiate the drug from its other species
