Andrographis echiodes Nees and Andrographis paniculata Nees are two species of the Genera Andrographis of the Acanthaceae family. The whole plant of A. echiodes and A. paniculata find the place in the Indian system of medicine. The TLC and HPTLC finger print of different extracts were developed. The TLC and HPTLC of hexane, chloroform, ethyl acetate and ethyl alcohol extracts were carried out and compared. The TLC photo documentation at UV 254 nm, 366 nm and post derivatization with vanillin-sulphuric acid reagent revealed that the two species are composed of different type of compounds and the HPTLC finger print also confirmed the dissimilarity between the species. These photo documentation and finger prints can be used as a reference documents for the identification as well as quality control of the two drugs in their different forms.
