Like its smaller relatives, Lymantria sporarmis survives by draining plants and vegetables of their nutrients. Given the desolate nature of the region, that makes its options rather limited, but fortunately its relationship with the desert's plants is symbiotic. In addition to pollinating them, the spores it releases help nourish the harsh desert plants.

When attacked, the slow-moving Lymantria immediately takes to the air and flies almost straight up while releasing spores. While the spores are nutritious to most plants, they are highly poisonous to most other organisms.

Domesticated

Lymantria is occasionally used as a one man flying mount, but its ability to produce silk and spores is often considered more valuable due to its slow flight speed. Its silk can be weaved into heat-dispersing cloth, and its spores gathered for fertilizer or poison. Its saving grace as a mount is its ability to release spores mid flight, allowing it to act as a primitive bomber during sieges.

The Lymantria is one of the creatures in the ARK: Scorched Earth expansion pack.

Appearance

It seems to resemble a giant moth, with bright colored wings.

Behavior

Passive. Upon combat with a player or creature it will deploy a green mist of spores, that slows players and dinos by 90% (it also drains stamina). While its attacker is distracted, it will flee.

Domestication

Taming

TBA

Trivia

  • On February 15th 2016, a fan-made dossier of a giant lepidoptera was uploaded onto the fan art section of the Ark forums.
  • One of the dossier clippings shown in the image appears to depict the "Moth" releasing some kind of chemical attack.
  • Another clipping seems to confirm that players will be able to ride and likely tame the moth.
