Some species of the genus Ochradenus are difficult to identify based on morphological markers. Similar limitations are found for biochemical markers. We developed genetic markers based on DNA sequences for Ochradenus arabicus, which is an endemic plant to Saudi Arabia, locally utilized as a medicinal shrub. The internal transcribed spacer sequence of nuclear ribosomal DNA and chloroplast (rpoB and rpoC1) markers were more informative than other chloroplast DNA markers.
