Rubus racemosus is commonly known as cheethi in Tamil. Traditionally it is used as an antidiabetic, abortifacient, muscle relaxant and free radical scavenging agents. Infusion of leaves was administered to stop diarrhea and some bleeding. There was no report on the pharmacognostic study of plant and hence the present investigation deals with anatomical, microscopical, fluorescence analysis, quantitative microscopy, determination of leaf constants, physiochemical, thin layer chromatography and high performance thin layer chromatography. Phytochemical studies showed the presence of flavanoids, saponin, terpenes, glycosides and phenols.
