pium

I'm including this not so much for the word itself, but for the wonderful overly-English definition that comes with it:

pium n a small but very troublesome Brazilian biting fly (Origin from Tupi) Chambers, 1998

I can just visualise the scene at the Explorer's Club: "Very troublesome, weren't they, Jenkins?" "Oh yes, vey troublesome, vey troublesome."
