Oxyacta is a genus.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Oxyacta is a genus of fauna in No Man's Sky. They are commonly referred to as "wraiths." This is because when they were visible in the early No Man's Sky trailers, they were seen around Portals, and came to be called "Portal wraiths." Although they are not known to be associated with Portals in the final release, the "wraith" portion stuck. They are also commonly called "flying snakes," which is the 'common name' that the game code uses, and "flying worms," due to their appearance.
