fulvous \ˈful-vəs, ˈfəl-\ adjective: of a dull brownish yellow; tawny

Etymology: Latin fulvus; perhaps akin to Latin flavus yellow

Does fulvous correspond to a specific hue or range of hues on a color chart, or is it a hazy, imprecise term safe only for casual conversationists and pretentious artists?
