Scruff (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

nape

'scruff' is the definition.
(synonyms)

This is all the clue.

(Other definitions for nape that I've seen before include "Here's a hairline" , "Girl personifying France" , "It's a pane in the neck" , "Scruff of the neck" , "Scrag" .)

I've seen this clue in the LA Times, the Penny Press, The Telegraph, the Universal and the King Feature Syndicate.
