Scorpion-Flies are plump, flying creatures, about two - four feet long and the prey of the Pterobuzzards. They are also nocturnal creatures, attracted to light at night, and (in the film) living in what appear to be hives during the day. They are known for landing on the Grocery Store's windows at night, attracted by the light inside.

HistoryEdit

Attracted by the lights in the store, a swarm of Scorpion-Flies land on the store windows at night, apparently attracting a flock of Pterobuzzards in the process, which pluck and devour the Scorpion-Flies from the store windows, eventually breaking one of the windows open.

FilmEdit

Scorpion-Fly+Carmody

A Scorpion-Fly by Mrs. Carmody.

Five Scorpion-Flies escape into the store through the broken window, one of them managing to sting Sally. Two are crushed or cut to death by Tom and Amanda, while the other three are eaten by a Pterobuzzard.

At the end of the film, what appears to be a Scorpion-Fly hive is seen attached to a tree. When a military convoy passes by the area and the mist dissipates, a soldier incinerates the hive with a flamethrower.

AnatomyEdit

NovellaEdit

Scorpion-Flies

The Scorpion-Flies land on the store windows.

The Scorpion-Flies are described as plump, segmented creatures with a stinger/sex organ, burnt-colored flesh and eyes on stalks protruding from their heads.

FilmEdit

The Scorpion-Flies in the film don't have eyestalks, have hard, purple, segmented shells and resemble a cross between a wasp and a scorpion. Their stingers also contain a neurotoxin which causes massive swelling and suffocation in minutes.
