The distribution pattern of phenolic constituents in 8 species ofIndigofera is studied. There is uniform occurrence ofp-coumaric,p-OH benzoic and vanillic acids and an unknown phenolic compound ‘e’ of hRf value 42/57 in all the taxa studied. There is a chemical similarity betweenIndigofera hochstetteri andIndigofera tinctoria. Indigofera dalzellii, Indigofera hirsuta, Indigofera oblongifolia andIndigofera prostrata stand out in the unique possession of certain compounds. The overlapping incidence of the constituents indicates the fairly close chemical ties among the species studied. The cluster analysis reveals that it supports earlier sub divisions of the genus to some extent.
