Default [Dixonary] MIURUS

Here are a baker's dozen choices for this word - sans use of a dictionary,
vote for two hereof before 10 a.m. EST on Wednesday 9 January 2019.

1. excessive perspiration
2. an excretory duct of the lacrimal gland
3. an involuntary spasm of the eyelid muscle
4. a hexameter with a short penultimate syllable
5. a fleshy lobe hanging below the chin of certain birds
6. a small feline predator found principally in the rain forests of the
Amazon basin
7. a disease of the gall bladder characterized by thickened bile and
extreme jaundice
8. an odiferous exudation from a tree which is perhaps the Borassus
flabelliformis, Lin. of Arabia Felix
9. a bale or package (of exotic products, e.g. almonds, medicinal bark,
cocoa) made up in an animal's hide
10. [Paleo. Geol.] Fossil species which are smaller than their modern-day
descendants, e.g. eohippus was smaller than equus
11. [Zool.] one of the anterior wings of beetles, and of some other
insects, when thickened and used to protect the bird wings; an elytron
12. a rare disease affecting 1 in 2 million people in which the body's
tendons and ligaments undergo a strange metamorphosis, especially a
transformation into bone
13. a natural light display in the Earth's sky, very similar to Aurora
Borealis and Australis. Miurus falls mostly outside of the human visual
spectrum, and can only be seen on special camera arrays.
