Foliar anatomical studies of fifteen taxa belonging to fifteen genera of Euphorbiaceae were done to understand the foliar structural details in unravelling taxonomical disputes if any. There is a range of characters which varies between genera and species. The presence of single, double and multiple layer of epidermis, palisade parenchyma, spongy parenchyma and other special tissues and storage organs are of taxonomic interest. A combination of these characters may be used to identify the specific species.
Key words: Foliar, anatomy, mesophyll, taxonomy, Euphorbiaceae.
