NotesThe larvae of several giant insects are collectively referred to as ‘stingworms’. Stingworms resemble caterpillars, but with longer legs better adapted for fast movement. Both land- and water-dwelling forms exist. The creatures repeatedly molt throughout their life, increasing in size each time. The abilities below are for a stingworm that has completed the last pre-adult molt, and is about to pupate. This stage is the longest, and some species actually spend longer as larvae than they do as pupae or adults. Stingworms lie in wait for prey, often concealed beneath mud, stones, or other debris, or in the water if aquatic. When a suitable target passes by, they lash out suddenly, grab it with their sharp mandibles, and inject their venom with bite or sting, depending on the species. Anaxial
