ମଇଁଷିଆ ଲେମ୍ବୁ [36] …..lembu -> Citrus maxima (Burm.) Osbeck (I cannot work out first part of name)
ମଇଁଷିଆ = mainshia … referred Oriya dictionary … Purnnachandra Ordia Bhashakosha by Praharaj, G.C..


I was not aware of this dictionary… or that it was open. There are a few more coming from Digital Dictionaries of South Asia. They are waiting for the lawyers to sort the copyrights problems. These dictionaries are good but a little out-dated when it comes to horticulture. This is where groups like efloraofindia come in to fill the gaps. It is all very exciting.
