LOL! The base word presented is "VOLVENT", and yet, TFD says it is not found in the dictionary or the encyclopedia.

I just tried to look it up - you're right, Wilmar!

The word looks familiar to me though; perhaps I've had it as a game word & not looked it up? Think

[EDIT] I found volvent nemotocyst.

Interesting, I thought it was somehow related to flying, like from french volver.
And now I find it isn't french at all, it's spanish and it doesn't mean to fly,
but to return.
At least that was my mnemonic when I played.
