I feel like it's Wednesday Tuesday

I found my spelling bee list, so I'm not as cross, but now I'm annoyed because the other day I found a wonderful word in a Roald Dahl book, and today I can't seem to be able to locate it. Ah well. Words!

arrhostia

noun
An evolutionary product or trend that appears to be more or less pathological (as the immense size attained by certain dinosaurs)


This definition was taken from the national Spelling Bee. This information was found at http://calorielab.com/news/2009/06/07/dr-j-about-arrhostia/


I don't know, it sounded good to me when I watched the bee a few weeks ago, but now I'm not sure I understand it, and I can't seem to find a better definition. Help? I quite like this word.
