Abstract: In the present investigation phytochcmical analysis and larvicidal activity of Allmania nodiflora. were screened against Aedes aegypti in the phytochemical analysis of the petroleum ether and ethanol extract of A. nodiflora revealed the presence of alkaloids, flavanoids, saponins, glycosides, steroids. The phenol and tannin were absent in petroleum ether extract in ethanolic extract. The tannins were present and absent in petroleum ether extract. In GCMS analysis 9 bioactive phytochemical compounds were identified in the ethanolic extract of A. nodiflora. The extract were subjected for screening of larvicidal activity against Aedes aegypti at the concentration of (2%, 4%, 8%, 10%, 15%, 20%) were analyzed the highest mortality was observed after 96 hours in ethanolic extract. Lowest mortality was observed in petroleum ether extract 24hours.
