Abstract: A comparison of anatomical features of Oxalis corniculata L. and, Oxalis latifolia Kunth. was undertaken. The results of abaxial leaf surfaces showed that the epidermal cells of these species have variable apes that are irregular. Ranunculous type of stomata occurred in both the species investigated. These species showed variations in stomata types and size, Transverse Section of root, petiole and stem. Most of the characters size/ally stomata were diagnostic and used for distinguishing taxa. Leaf epidermal anatomy was found taxonomically useful in the identification at the species level.
