Description

Dreadful Faerie
(Puellamusca aculevolans)
Common names: Blighties, Knits

It’s cute...but beware! The sting of a dreadful faerie is very painful but worse, it releases a pheromone that aggravates and attracts more
of the stinging nuisances from the closest hive.
Hives are usually hidden within hollowed tree trunks and can contain up to 200 dreadfuls. It is nearly impossible to distinguish males from females without invasive examination, though a queen can be easily identified by her crown.
It is believed that though they are primarily vegetarian, the dreadful queen occasionally needs to feed on human blood. To achieve this, a group of 12, called a blight, will set out with the queen at night to find a sleeping human. Once located, they all sting the victim at once, causing a condition called “sleep paralysis” in which the victim may become semi conscious but can neither move or shout and may have hallucinations. The queen then lands on their chest and sucks out the blood she needs. The human will awaken after they leave, unsure of what just happened.
Some guard against these attacks by hanging Amanita Muscaria mushrooms around windows and doors as the dreadful faerie loathes their odor.

You will receive one mummified specimen in a 1" x 3.75" glass vile
And one pedigree card with scientific information and story (as seen above)
