- n. A genus of African weaver-birds, of the family Ploccidæ.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Hyphantria textor, the Fall-weaver, is found in May or June.
The Hyphantria textor now lays its smooth, spherical eggs in broad patches on the under side of the leaves of the apple, which the caterpillar will ravage in August; and its ally, the Halesidota caryæ, we have found ovipositing the last week in the month on the leaves of the butternut.
Assuming the textor wasn't the fatality in question.
If I've ever heard of worshipping idols / repitition of crosby / textor spin, then you lot take the cake.
