Abstract

Euphrasia stricta D. Wolffex J. F. Lehm. (Orobanchaceae) is a representative of plants that are widely used in folk medicine, phytomedicine, and homeopathy. The medicinal raw material derived from the drug eyebright is applied primarily in treatment of ophthalmic diseases. The investigations of trichomes in drug eyebright (Euphrasia stricta D. Wolffex J. F. Lehm) were conducted in 2010-2011. Using light microscopy and scanning electron microscopy, their location and morphological and anatomical features were identified. Three types of non-glandular trichomes were found: Short unicellular, long 1-2 celled, and long 2-celled with wall ornamentation. Additionally, 7 types of glandular trichomes were found; these included: Unicellular clavate, 2-3-celled clavate, capitate with a unicellular head and a 3-celled stalk, capitate with a unicellular head and a 2-celled stalk, capitate with a 2-celled head, conical papillae, and ribbon-like trichomes with wall thickening.
