Silkgrubs, of the family Dolbaserica, are small herbivorous insects that produce silk, native to the 2nd Realm.
They exhibit neoteny in that they often do not metamorphose into adults, rather using the silk meant for their cocoon as shelter-building material, to stay warm and dry.
They inhabit the Central Continent’s equatorial rainforest (Sericifera erucula), and its many other deciduous forests (Sericifera foliphagia).
Their silk is used for;
Due to silkgrubs’ high populations in forests, the Morellic and Neth cultures both often utilise their silk. Adversely, the Snixian culture often uses goat wool due to their position atop the Snixian Alps.
