[Boucher 1996]  Boucher, Daniel. "Buddhist Translation Procedures in Third-Century China: A Study of Dharmarakṣa and his Translation Idiom." PhD dissertation, University of Pennsylvania, 1996. — 279

In the appendix to his dissertation Boucher provides a list of ninety-five texts attributed to Dharmarakṣa by Sengyou in his Chu sanzang ji ji出三藏記集 T2145, along with a note on relevant scholarship. Among these texts is the Mile cheng fo jing 彌勒成佛經 *Maitreyavyākaraṇa. He adds that this is a different text than the one translated by Kumārajīva. He also discusses, in connection with this text, 彌勒下生經 T453, which is ascribed to Dharmarakṣa and, in virtue of the similarity of the title, might be thought to be the referent of this entry in Sengyou; however, he seems to hold, following Matsumoto, that it is highly unlikely that T453 is by Dharmarakṣa.
