/ ʻō.pū.lau.oho / Haw to Eng, Pukui-Elbert,

1. n., Case and larva of case moth (Tineola uterella 🌐), found on cement walls of basements or in caves, so called perhaps because the interior of the case is sometimes lined with hair. Literally, head-hair womb.

2. n., A strange malady, the only symptoms of which were fine tracings of blood vessels on the stomach at birth which vanished shortly afterward. One with such tracings would grow up to be sterile, if a male, or if a female, would not have a child that lived more than a few months.
