UKT: The present version of this book, Agri.Dept.2000, for some unknown reason came to an end abruptly with entry 1728, even though its sister version, LSR, had two more entries under r7c4 vowel-akshara {a.}. There are also species which had been dropped out, for no obvious reason, e.g. {E-ka.rz}, which should have been listed between 64-1724 and 65-1725.
The following are from LSR.
  {-ka.rz} LSR 495 Tree jasmine, Indian cork tree Millingtonia hortensis Bignonniaceae 495
  {U.thhyis} LSR 497 Bael fruit Aegle marmalos Carrea Rutaceae 497
  {AU-za}  LSR 501 Custard apple Annona squamosa Linn Annonaceae 501
