Phyllanthus amarus  S & T (Family: Euphorbeaceae) is an important medicinal plant. It is probably native to America but found throughout to India and almost all tropical countries.  Widespread throughout the tropics and subtropics in sandy regions as a weed in cultivated and waste lands. Whole plant is used as bitter, antipyretic, antiseptic, astringent, cooling agent,diuretic, in dropsy, gastrointestinal troubles like colic, diarrohea, dysentery, other genital disease and in jaundice. It also alleviates the anorexia and also used as a diuretic in dropsial affections, gonorrhea and other problems of genitor urinary tract. Whole plant material was subjected to macro-microscopic, physico-chemical, preliminary phytochemical, TLC to fix the quality standards of this drug. The experiment has resulted a set of diagnostic characters essential for its standardization. The experiments yielded a set of diagnostic characters comparable with standard literatures. This study would be useful for standardization of this raw drug derived from whole plant of Phyllanthus amarus S & T.
