Wurrus. Flemmingia grahamiana.

Botanical name:

Wurrus.—Under the name of Vars, Wars, or Wurrus, a powder somewhat similar to kamala has been used as an anthelmintic in Southern Arabia, and exported into commerce from Aden. It is believed to be the product of Flemmingia Grahamiana W. et Arn. (Fam. Leguminosae.) (P. J., Sept., 1887.) It is composed of cylindrical or subconical grains, 170 to 200 mm. long by 70 to 100 broad, with oblong resin cells arranged perpendicularly in three or four tiers.


The Dispensatory of the United States of America, 1918, was edited by Joseph P. Remington, Horatio C. Wood and others.
