NO ONE snitch to nintendo again but if you keep 1-3 trees up on nook islands you’ll get an assload of atlas moths. if you get a bamboo island, keep 2 palm trees up and you’ll get an inventory of atlas moths in >30 mins. if you clear out the palms and as much bamboo as possible, you’ll get SCORPIONS, and if the island is raining, you’ll get TWO AT A TIME!! i miss the old bug spawn rates so much
This shiny beetle is a six spotted tiger beetle (Cicindela sexguttata) and boy was he pretty. I had never encountered one prior to today, and when I told him how nice and pretty his jaws were he decided to try and use them. He was promptly shook off and strutted off unharmed and proud of himself.
Ironic, that I make a Bug AU considering I’m terribly afraid of bug and insects, but I started to hyperfixate on bugs after getting back into Hollow Knight and Owlboy and wanted to make an AU with the ghosts from LM3 as bugs.
Enough rambling, here’s the list-
Chambrea: Lady Bug
Kruller: Bee (Ya’ll knew I had to do it to him)
Soulfflé: European Firebug
Amadeus Wolfgeist: Praying Mantis
King MacFrights: Hercules Beetle
Dr. Potter: Leaf Bug
Morty: Karner Blue Butterfly
Serpci: Scarab Beetle
Nikki, Lindsey, and Ginny: Spicebush Swallowtail Caterpillar(s)
Captain Fishook: Giant Water Bug (Toe Biters)
Johnny Deepend: Water Boatman Bug
DJ Phantasmagloria: Firefly
Hellen Gravely: Black Widow Spider
King Boo: Fall Webworm Moth
Luigi and the gang aren’t bugs, and when you catch the ‘Bug Bosses’ they’re container in E. Gadds lab look like those little bug containers.
Also King Boo and Polterkitty are like, actual bugs.
NOTE: I might change some of these bugs, if I think another bug/insect is a better fit for the character
A lovely gold-colored tortoise beetle from South Africa. Tribe Cassidini of the large leaf beetle family Chrysomelidae. Caught while on expedition to Kruger National Park, collatoral capture from a bowl trap. A lovely specimen about which I know only what I have told you. But..., if you look closely on the underside, there is an embedded wee little man, one of the fairy kings, look it up, its in the literature. Photo by Cole Cheng.
