The present study on pharmacognostic activities of fruit of Wrightia tinctoria R.Br such as fluorescence analysis of powder crude drug and their chemical behavior, consistency, color and pharmacognostic analysis of fruit extracts of W. tinctoria R.Br were studied by using methanol, petroleum ether and ethyl acetate solvents. The result reveals that, the crude drug of fruit of W. tinctoria R.Br was found sticky mass in nature in petroleum ether and ethyl acetate extracts. While, semi solid mass was found in methanolic extracts. The color in day light was found reddish in presence of methanolic extract while cream color in petroleum ether and pale yellow coloration was observed in case of ethyl acetate extract. The coloration were variable according to differentially in short ultraviolet and long ultraviolet light.
