Tālapatrā (तालपत्रा) is another name for Miśreyā, an unidentified medicinal plant possibly identified with Foeniculum vulgare (synonym Foeniculum capillaceum) or “fennel”, from the Apiaceae (Umbelliferae) or “carrot family” of flowering plants, according to verse 4.14-19 of the 13th-century Raj Nighantu or Rājanighaṇṭu. The fourth chapter (śatāhvādi-varga) of this book enumerates eighty varieties of small plants (pṛthu-kṣupa). Also see Śatāhvā. Together with the names Tālapatrā and Miśreyā, there are a total of fifteen Sanskrit synonyms identified for this plant.Source: WorldCat: Rāj nighaṇṭu
