Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Susārada Thera:He was born in the family of a kinsman of Sāriputta and was given his name because he was a dullard.He heard Sāriputta preach,entered the Order,and became an arahant.

In the time of Padumuttara Buddha he was a brahmin,who became an ascetic.One day he saw the Buddha begging for alms and filled his bowl with sweet fruits.Seven hundred kappas ago he was a king,named Sumangala (Thag.vs.75; ThagA.i.167).He is evidently identical with Phaladāyaka of the Apadāna.Ap.i.160f.
