The remains of a bug, consumed by a fungus. Frequently releases clouds of thick, deadly gas.

The bugs of Hallownest are so pathetic that being infected by poisonous fungi actually increases their chances of survival! They really are absurd creatures.

Behaviour and Tactics

Much like Volatile Mosskin, it meanders peacefully back and forth until disturbed. Once engaged, it emits an explosive gas cloud from its body, in a wider area of effect than that of a Volatile Mosskin.

Shortly after being killed, its corpse will produce one final explosion that is smaller and equal to that of a Volatile Mosskin.
