ᴱQ. ulumpingwe n. “caterpillar” (Category: Insect)

⚠️ᴱQ. ulumpingwë, n. “caterpillar” (Category: Insect)
ᴺQ. ^ulumpembë “caterpillar, (lit.) camel worm”

A word appearing as ᴱQ. {ulumpinge >>} ulumpingwe in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s (QL/97), perhaps as a combination of ᴱQ. ulumpe “camel” and ᴱQ. lingwe “snake, worm”. This word was also mentioned in the contemporaneous Poetic and Mythological Words of Eldarissa (PME/97).

Neo-Quenya: I would adapt this word as ᴺQ. ulumpembë “caterpillar, (lit.) camel worm”, altering its second element to ᴺQ. vembë “worm”.
