Rfv-sense "hairy and poisonous caterpillar". 蚝 is a simplified form of 蠔, which are hardly ever used in Korean, unless it's also an alternative Chinese form with this sense. Note that 蠔 and 蚝 have different Korean readings as well - 호 (ho) and 자 (ja). @Wyang, TAKASUGI Shinji, pls check/comment. --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 05:16, 12 January 2015 (UTC)
- Apart from being the simplified form of 蠔, 蚝 is also a traditional character, pronounced cì, meaning "hairy caterpillars".
