1. Any of various South American weevils of the genus Zyzzyva, often destructive to plants

This word is not in the Oxford English Dictionary so I can't account for an etymology, but its form is so crazy I had to put it here. It's the last word in most English dictionaries and would be a very impressive Scrabble word if you had a couple of blanks to account for the extra z's.
