[gdw]

[ FEW: 10,590a russus; Gdf: ; GdfC: ; TL: 8,1492 rossaz; DEAF:  ros 3 (rosat); DMF: ; TLF: ; OED: ; MED: ; DMLBS: ]
rosas,  rosaz,  rossaz,  rouzhard  58.32 rouseaus  

AND1 included this word as a form of russet. However, this -a- form derives from Latin russatus ‘clothed in red’ (Lewis and Short 1607c), rather than a diminutive suffix added to rus1.
