In-Game Information

MHFU-Vespoid Icon
A massive thorax and brilliant, gigantic wings mark the Vespoid Queen. It commands its subjects through unique flight patterns, and will stab any intruders with a poisonous stinger that also causes paralysis. It also spits acidic bodily fluid at prey.

Taxonomy

Order: Shell Insect - Suborder: Hario - Family: Vespoid - Species: Vespoid

The Vespoid Queen is an adult female Vespoid that commands a Vespoid swarm. Being the queen, these Vespoid are much larger than the other members of the hive which is common in insect societies.

Habitat Range

Thus far, the Vespoid Queen appears to be limited to the Jungle and Old Jungle.

Ecological Niche

Vespoid Queen rarely leave their nests as they send out workers to forage for food. They feed on smaller insects, birds, small mammals, lizards, and some vegetation. Whenever the queen does leave the nest she puts herself in serious danger as she can be preyed upon by creatures such as Gypceros, Yian Kut-Ku, Hypnocatrice, Congalala, Plesioth, and Iodrome.

Biological Adaptations

The Vespoid Queen rarely does battle; when it does, it essentially performs the same attacks as Vespoids with more power; however, it does possess an additional attack: it sprays body fluid at hunters that halves defense. It also produces a beating sound in order to command swarm of Vespoid in battle. The queen spends a vast majority of her time staying within the nest and laying eggs.

Behavior

Vespoid Queen can be quite aggressive towards threats. The she only appears when she fears her swarm is in danger of being wiped out.
