Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Heraññakāni Thera:He was the son of an official of the king of Kosala who turned bandit.On his father’s death he succeeded to his place.He was present when the Buddha accepted Jetavana,and,filled with wonder,he entered the Order,where he soon attained arahantship.Later he persuaded his brother too,with some difficulty,to become a monk.

In the time of Padumuttara Buddha he was a labourer (bhataka),and seeing the Buddha’s disciple,Sujāta,looking for rags for his robe,gave him half a garment (Thag.vs.145-6; ThagA.i.266f).

He is evidently identical with Upaddhadussadāyaka of the Apadāna.Ap.ii.435f.
