1) Patravallī (पत्रवल्ली) is another name for Rudrajaṭā, a medicinal plant identified with Aristolochia indica (Indian birthwort or duck flower) from the Aristolochiaceae or “birthwort family” of flowering plants, according to verse 3.79-81 of the 13th-century Raj Nighantu or Rājanighaṇṭu. The third chapter (guḍūcyādi-varga) of this book contains climbers and creepers (vīrudh). Together with the names Patravallī and Rudrajaṭā, there are a total of sixteen Sanskrit synonyms identified for this plant.

2) Patravallī (पत्रवल्ली) is also mentioned as a synonym for Palāśī, an unidentified medicinal plant, according to verse 3.145-147. Vaidyaka Śabda Sindhu says Palāśī is a tree, with latex and a famous creeper by its name in Nāgar-deśa and in Kashmir it is known as Śaṭī.; it appears that Vaidyaka Śabda Sindhu is not clear whether Palāśī is a tree or a creepre. Bhāvaprakāśa has mentioned one Gandha-Palāśī (Hedychium spicatum or spiked ginger lily). Raghuvīr Prasāda Trivedī rejects claim by maintaining that the properties of Palāśī of Raj Nighantu and Gandha-Palāśī of Bhāvaprakāśa differ.
