More Information

This is a pretty large spider-like thing. It has nine legs usually but sometimes seven or eight, never fewer than seven unless the bug has been injured. A big spider on Earth would be a tera' voDchuch, but a small spider would not be a voDchuch.

(booklet of qepHom 2018)

voDchuch is not a general word for spiders, it's a specific Klingon animal that somehow resembles a spider. It's a very big animal about the size of a hand. When talking about the Terran version of the animal, one can add (as usual) tera' to it. If it's a small version of it, then it's okay to say voDchuchHom or tera' voDchuchHom, "small Earth version of the animal that looks like a spider".
