Lohitaṃ kirati vikkhipati ito cito ca paggharatīti lohitakaṃ.


Ñ(VI,8): The bleeding: it sprinkles (kirati), scatters, blood (lohita), and it trickles here and there, thus it is 'the bleeding (lohitaka)'.

Paggharitalohitamakkhitassa chavasarīrassetamadhivacanaṃ.


Ñ: This is a term for a corpse smeared with trickling blood.
