Description from The Citrus Industry Vol. 1 (1967):

"Of limited commercial importance in Japan are several other pummelo-like fruits either known or thought to have originated as chance seedlings.

  Not commercially important but of interest in the category of pummelo-like fruits are the Asahikan (C. asahikan Tan.) of Japan and the Attani  (C. rugulosa Tan.) of India."
