No need at all to apologize.  These texts can be maddening if you're looking
for conclusive evidence for anything.  I think there is incidental support
for the inhumi on Urth, but I also think that Wolfe shoehorned it in after
the fact.  Near the end of Claw, Jolenta is bitten by something (a blood
bat?) and the bleeding won't stop.  Immediately after, they meet the Cumaen
and Merryn in the ruined town of Apu Punchau.  This doesn't have any
relevance by itself, but in Return to the Whorl, Silkhorn and Jahlee (and
whoever else) encounter Merryn on Urth and Jahlee seems to intimate that
Merryn is an inhuma (at least that's one way to interpret it).
