Abstract: The objective of this study is to evaluate the agro-morphologicals parameters of Myrianthus arboreus in five localities of the Côte d’Ivoire.Seventy-five individuals of Myrianthus arboreus collected in five localities of Côte d’Ivoire (Abengourou, Adzopé, Daloa, Diabo and Zouan Hounien), have been evaluated agro-morphologically. Twelve characters selected from the descriptors of this plant were used in this study. Statistical analysis revealed a high variability between the individuals collected. But a higher value of parameters tested was recorded in Abengourou than Diabo. Positive correlations were observed between leaf, production parameters and between foliage and production parameters. Hierarchical Classification Analysis associated with Discriminant Factor Analysis showed that individuals tested were split in three groups with complementary characteristics. Among parameters tested leaves width and fruits full quarter’s number were revealed as discriminating factors.
