Eruḍikā (एरुडिका) is another name for Eruḍī: the name of a a Śaiva pīṭha listed in the Tantrasadbhāva (13.74b and 15.70b). Eruḍī is also mentioned by Abhinavagupta in Tantrāloka 15.91a (as Eruḍikā). The Bherāghāt Yoginī is perhaps connected to the pīṭha by this name, but there are no grounds for linking the Eruḍī-pīṭha to the Bherāghāt region.
