Hello friends (calling Sanskrit knowers),
Following are the names in Sanskrit that I found on internet for Hymenodictyon orixense (popular synonym: H. excelsum):
1) bhramaravha, bhramarchhallika, bramarachalli, chhalli
2) bhrangavrksha, bhrigatvaka, bhringhamulika, bhringhava, bhrngahva
3) kevika
4) kshiradru
5) ugragandha
... commonly known as: bridal couch plant, mountain sage (doubt whether these names are popular in India).

Are the following spelt correctly and make sense, and do they mean H. orixense ?
भ्रमरवह bhramaravha
भ्रमरछल्ली bhramarchalli
भृङ्गःवृक्ष bhringah-vriksha
भृङ्गट्वाका bhringatvaka
भृङ्गःवह bhringahva
क्षीरद्रु kshiradru
उग्रगन्ध ugragandha
I could make no sense from kevika.
