Abstract: The genus Costus Linn. belongs to family Costaceae, which has been separated from family Zingiberaceae on the basis of the presence of spirally arranged leaves and rhizomes being free from aromatic essential oils. More than 100 species of the genus are distributed in the tropics all over the world.
