Physical Description

Tohitas are a type of small flying insect, similar to the common butterfly. They have a pair of triangular wings and a cluster of tiny legs around a small body at the base. These wings are thick and crunchy, and a bright shade of yellow.

Tohitas preen themselves regularly, producing a thin dust. This dust contains chemicals used by the tohitas as a mating display, and which have a strong smell and taste enjoyed by many species. The dust builds up on their wings until mating season, when it is wafted off in order to attract mates in huge, yellow-orange clouds which can be seen from space due to the swarming nature of the insect.

Tohita wings are often fried and made into a snack product that cannot be named on the Cosmosdex for legal reasons.

Behavior

Tohitas are a swarming animal, travelling in large groups of between a thousand and ten thousand, with the exception of mating season. During this time every swarm in an area combines to form a megaswarm of up to a million insects, all flapping brightly coloured dust around.

Tohitas are mostly harmless to large sapients, though fairies and other similarly-sized beings should beware collisions with large swarms. The main threat posed is hungry swarms damaging agriculture and trees.

Subspecies

Chiz: These tohitas produce a cheesy flavoured dust, and are in high demand.

Ch'li Hiit: Ch'li tohitas also secrete a caspacin-based defensive compound to their dust. A ch'li tohitas mating dust cloud has been liked to "Delicious delicious tear gas". Snack products made from these are considered to be a staple food by professional gamers.

Salat'd: These tohitas produce a dust with almost no flavour or smell at all, and are considered "mostly pointless" by the layman.

Special

None.

Trivia

• While Tohitas are generally considered a junk or snack food, some chefs like to use them in exotic food blends and other such haute cuisine.
