Resin (3)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

lac

'resin' is the definition.
(resin secreted by lac insects)

This is the entire clue.

(Other definitions for lac that I've seen before include "Insect-produced resin" , "Ingredient of varnish" , "Stated need" , "Natural product" , "insects secrete this" .)

I've seen this clue in the Penny Press, The Guardian, the Evening Standard, the USA Today, The Mirror, The Times and The Telegraph.
