Atigandhālu (अतिगन्धालु) is another name for Putradātrī, an unidentified medicinal plant, according to verse 3.143-144 of the 13th-century Raj Nighantu or Rājanighaṇṭu. The third chapter (guḍūcyādi-varga) of this book contains climbers and creepers (vīrudh). Putradātrī is different from Putradā, described by Narhari. Putradātrī is different from Putrañjīva (Putranjiva roxburghii) too though the actions appear mostly similar. Similarly, it can’t be Lakṣamaṇā either, as the latter has been described separatly by Narhari in chapter 4 along with Śatāhvādi-varga. Together with the names Atigandhālu and Putradātrī, there are a total of eight Sanskrit synonyms identified for this plant.
