A-ji-ba-mo" is a popular crude drug used as remedies for afflictions such as asthma, pulmonary tuberculosis, stomachache, arthritis, and bruise, by a Chinese minority race, called "Yi." In order to identify the botanical origin of "A-ji-ba-mo," the roots of Dipsacus asperoides, D. atropurpureus, D. chinensis, D. japonicus, D. fulingensis and D. enshiensis of the family Dipsacaceae, growing wild in the Yi tribe's habitat in southwest China were anatomically studied.
