The Greater Mushroom Beetle (GMB) is a category of fauna.

The fungal symbiote which defines the GMB, as seen on the U. Galleobera species. Appearance may vary slightly.

Summary[edit | edit source]

The Greater Mushroom Beetle (GMB) is a subset of the Conokinis fauna genus. The subset is highly sought after by explorers due to its rarity: GMBs are generally regarded as being even more rare than megafauna diplos.

The GMB subset was first defined by 7101334, and (unlike the various Genera) is a player-created category, not an actual part of the game code. The first known discovery of a GMB was on November 7, 2016 by Cernunok.

A Greater Mushroom Beetle is defined by the presence of a full-fruiting-body fungal symbiote. In other words, the beetle must have the whole mushroom shape on its back, the stem and cap. A beetle with only a mushroom cap but no stem is known as a Lesser Mushroom Beetle (LMB). LMBs are fairly common and not generally considered as noteworthy.

It's important to note that the "Greater" in "Greater Mushroom Beetle" has nothing to do with the actual size of the animal. It refers strictly to the type of fungal symbiote.

Notes: Yellow blood
Other: This friendly GMB inhabits a planet which is also home to a Galactic Hub colony, the tropical colony of Interloper Island. This GMB is just small enough to be fed by hand. It features a yellow body with brown or red stripes (they can appear black and white in this planet's unique light) and a brown or grey mushroom (which appears red, purple, brown in the natural planet light).

U.Galleobera1.png

U. Galleobera Planet: Greater Mushroom Beetle Desert Resort
Generated Planet Name: Toyol Minor
System: Osengo
Region: Unknown
Quadrant: Gamma
Coordinates: 0760:0080:0EBC:0173
Glyphs: 3173016BDF61
Temperament: Docile
Diet: Tall grasses
Height: 6.0m
Weight: 286.3kg
Notes: Hybrid species
Bait: Fermented Fruit
Other: As one of the largest GMBs on record, the U. Galleobera is an especially impressive presence to behold. Other smaller fauna spawn in great density on their desert homeworld, which can make these GMBs slightly difficult to locate. The easiest way is to use your Analysis Visor to spot more distant fauna-dots, as smaller fauna will not spawn as far away as these large animals. It features a green, purple, and brown mushroom with a large, fairly flat cap. The main beetle body features thick yellow stripes and dots on an orange body, eight crab-like legs, and two tentacle-like appendages extending from the front of the body below the head area. One large mushroom cap without a stem also grows on the front portion of the torso.

Other: A colorful GMB species named after Ken Kesey, American author and major figure in the Merry Pranksters. Although this species survived the Foundation, Pathfinder, and Atlas Rises eras despite significant changes to their homeworld, the NEXT Update proved too much for the species to endure, and they were rendered extinct, as confirmed by two independent Galactic Hub surveys.

Other: This predatory GMB thrived during the Atlas Rises era just outside of the Galactic Hub's old space claim. A partial survey conducted on March 31, 2019 by Galactic Hub Lead Exozoologist 7101334 failed to locate the species. Two planets were home to only Lok terrestrial species, including the only uploaded planet in the system, Eiyo 42/I5. Of the species on the remaining 3 planets, 14 out of 18 were identified. A predatory species may remain on Kagoy 48/T8 but the low spawn rate for fauna and likelihood that Eiyo 42/I5 is the old location dissuaded extensive research into Kagoy 48/T8.

Eiyo 42/I5 is likely the same planet as the former Diction Luzhou, as it is the only uploaded planet and a toxic planet. The remaining 4 species must be discovered to confirm it conclusively, but this GMB is very likely extinct.
