Ugravīrya (उग्रवीर्य) is another name (synonym) for Hiṅgu, which is a Sanskrit name for the plant Ferula assa-foetida (asafoetida). This synonym was identified by Narahari in his 13th-century Rājanighaṇṭu (verses 6.72-75), which is an Āyurvedic medicinal thesaurus. The synonym can also be divided as two separate synonyms, Śūlaghna and Gulmaghna.
