Species of lytta abound, but no use is made of them, the Shoans having no real medicine prepared from the animal kingdom.
We come now to the tribe of blistering beetles, of which the best known is the Cantharides (Cantharis or lytta).
Unwormed, un-wurmd′, adj. not wormed, not having had the worm or lytta under the tongue cut out—of a dog.
When the lytta, alias blister beetle, arrives, prepare to give a warm welcome to him and all of his kind.
