Abstract ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE: Various plants are being used as ethnomedicines against insects and worms in Aravalli hill range of India. In this study, we are focusing upon intellectual traditional ecological knowledge with an objective of revaluation of ethnomedicinal data processing for the plants being utilized against insects and worms. These plants can be explored for drug discovery program against insects and worms. MATERIALS AND METHODS: An ethnobotanical survey was carried out to raise the information on plants against insects and worms from ethnic tribes. The information about the plant part used, dose & mode of administration was collected and verified by interviewing at different times, tribes and places within the study area. RESULTS: 67 remedies with 49 plants species belonging to 29 families are identified and reported with taxonomic description. Mitragyna parvifolia (Roxb.) Korth. is first time reported with ethnomedicinal claims (against insects and worms). CONCLUSION: These plants may specially be selected for the drug discovery program against insects and worms. Active ingredients from these plants may serve as novel drug molecules. Beside conservation efforts to these plants there is an urgent need to document the ethnomedicinal knowledge. The survey provides a veritable source of information for traditional medical practitioners and medicinal plant researchers and help in developing strategies for future conservation.
