Abstract: The “Mora herb” is an herbaceous plant that is frequently employed in the periphery of the “Santa Catarina” mountains, Mexico. In the present research, the “Mora herb” was typified as two different species that belong to the same gender, Solanum nigrescens Mart. and Gal. and Solanum cervantesii Lag. Extracts from the aerial part of the species were obtained by direct maceration using hexane, ethyl acetate and methanol. Phytochemical and pharmacologic studies were carried out afterwards. These studies found that the species have different pharmacological and chemical patterns in the studied experimental models and therefore, determined that they might possess different medical properties, thus explaining the wide variety of therapeutic qualities that had been attributed to the “Mora herb”. This indicates the need to carry out a study that revises the pharmacological properties of this plant, placing an emphasis on identifying the specie.
