Shuowen gloss: 有足謂之蟲.無足謂之�.從三蟲.凡蟲之屬皆從蟲. [676]
Comments: Used also for a homonymous *Łhuŋ 'be hot (of weather). Standard Sino-Viet. is trùng. For *Łh (besides MC ḍ) cf. Xiamen, Chaozhou thaŋ2, Fuzhou thöŋ2. Note that Viet. sùng may go back to PAA *sǝ-rVŋ 'worm, centipede' ( = Khmer srɨŋ) - in which case any resemblance to Chinese is just coincidental.
