'also one in scarlet' is the definition.
Although both the answer and definition are singular nouns, I can't see how they can define each other.

'brown perhaps but' is the wordplay.
I cannot really understand how this works, but
'perhaps' could be 'y' (I've seen this in other clues) and 'y' is found in the answer.
The remaining letters 'stud' is a valid word which might be clued in a way I don't understand.
This explanation may well be incorrect...

'there's' is the link.
