Wordnik Word of the Day: Lucifugous

I thought as I received notable words from Wordnik's Word of the Day service, I'd post them here. If you like, sign-up for Wordnik's Word of the Day service yourself.


Shunning light; avoiding daylight: applied to various animals, as bats, cockroaches, etc.

‘Lucifugous’ comes from the Latin ‘lucere,’ to shine, and ‘fugax,’ apt to flee, timid.
