The Thunian wart-hornet was a race of hornet native to and quite commonly encountered on Thune, a planet situated in Wild Space. The insect had a bloated, slimy body much reminiscent of toads, and two pairs of multicolored wings like the Gorsian dragonfly. Its back was covered in pulsating warts that glowed aquamarine. The tongue of the wart-hornet was covered in venom that caused pain and swelling in the area of the lick. When attacked, a wart-hornet would emit a high-pitched warning cry that summoned others of its kind.
