Source: Wikisource: A dictionary of Sanskrit grammar

Vāraruca (वाररुच).—A work attributed to वररुचि (vararuci); cf. वाररुचे काव्यम् (vāraruce kāvyam) M. Bh.on P. IV.3.101; cf also वाररुनो ग्रन्थः (vāraruno granthaḥ) S.K.on P.IV.3. 101. This work possibly was not a grammar work and its author also was not the same as the Varttikakara Katyayana. See वरुरुचि (varuruci) above. The name वाररुचव्याकरण (vārarucavyākaraṇa) was given possibly to Katyayana's Prakrit Grammar, the author of which was वररुचि (vararuci) surnamed Katyayana. For details see p.395 Vyakarana Mahabhasya Vol. VII. D. E. Society's Edition.
