Unclear. Shuowen considers it to be an ideogrammic compound (會意):  (head of a ghost) +  (to trample) – a kind of monkey.

In the bronze script, the top of the character resembles the head of a ghost () and the bottom resembles . Zhang et al. (1996) considers this character differentiated (分化) from and that the character is a pictogram (象形) of a kind of insect with a decorative mark, similar to the one in (“scorpion”).
