Spoiler Alert!
This article contains plot details about the recently released book, The Poison Jungle. It would be best if you did not view this page until after reading the new installment.

The BeetleWings were a tribe that founded Pantala along with the LeafWings. They were eventually bred out of existence and became extinct due to the arrival of Clearsight, and officially split into the HiveWings and SilkWings around 4500 AS. They were first mentioned in The Poison Jungle.


They were said to look similar to SilkWings, having four wings (like a HiveWing also) and antennae. It is presumed that they also had some of a HiveWing’s features, considering that they were identifiable as the tribe's ancestors[1]. In The Lost Continent, Clearsight noted that BeetleWings had four wings that resembled the wings of dragonflies, beetles (hence the name BeetleWings), or butterflies.


Like their HiveWing descendants, some BeetleWings had insect-like powers. They possibly had antennae, because, in The Lost Continent, Cricket said the HiveWings used to have them (antennae). Their ability to shoot venom from their fangs is mentioned in particular, as well as flamesilk[2]. When Princess Tsunami arrived in the Poison Jungle, she heard about these powers, and seemingly connected them to the RainWing tribe back on Pyrrhia.


Though there were only five named BeetleWing individuals (four of them being hybrids), all of them were named after species of butterfly.
