Day 76: Bug/Psychic
Hunniplet > Formicyt
Though Formicyt do have tiny brains, it is the strange, parasitic growths on their back that do all their thinking for them. Formicyt work in tight-knit collectives, and the cysts that control their movement actually seem to operate as a single gestalt mind. When large numbers of Formicyt are gathered together, their telepathic link is stronger, and they become able to think faster and plan more effectively.
Tiny Hunniplet are taken care of by Formicyt, who feed them large quantities of nectar to ensure they grow to become strong new hosts for the growths.
These guys are based off of the cordyceps fungus, and the theme of mind control.
(Thanks to Adam for basically writing the flavor and coming up with names, I was caught off-guard by computer problems and had to change my plans last-minute)
