When ⺼ appears in this form as a component, we use the key meaning 'body part'. When it appears in its original form, (meat), we use 'meat'
Radical 74, (month; moon), also usually appears in kanji in exactly the same form as this form of (meat). To distinguish the two, in Kanshudo we use the character ⺼ as the component when it represents (meat), and (month; moon) or (month; moon)when it represents moon.
