Indira kobam in Siddha medicine is refferd to velvet mite i.e. Trombidium grandissimum which is endemic to the northern parts of the Indian subcontinent. Alternate names for it include Bir Bahuti, Scarlet Fly, Lady Fly, Velvet Buchi (Telugu term commonly used in Hyderabad, India), 'Aarudra Purugu' (another Telugu word from around Hyderabad, India because one sees them only in the season 'Aarudra'), 'Sadhaba Bohu'(Oriya term meaning 'bride of the Seafarer'owing to the Red velvet coat and beautiful looks) and Rani Keeda (Hindi/Urdu: Queen Mite). The mites are visible in large numbers early in the Monsoon season and so are also called
rain mites in the subcontinent. In Gujarat, the term for velvet mite is "Gokal Gaay" or "Mama Ni Gaay". Bir Bahuti is used as an ingredient in traditional Indian medicine.

The oil from red velvet mite "Trombidium grandissimum" is useful for paralysis. Also, due to its ability to increase sexual desire, Trombidium is named as ‘Indian Viagra’ (Click to Get the reference)
