It's everyone for themselves on Hoxxes, and life is cheap. Whatever foul mind dreamt up these things is truly deranged, though. These invasive larvae will burrow into practically anything biological given half a chance, and will multiply aggressively once they do find a nice nest. Take out the carriers and larvae themselves with extreme prejudice. The stories we've heard from our predecessors on Hoxxes are not for children.
— Miner's Manual Description

The Carnivorous Larva, also known as Parasite, is a hostile creature found during missions in any region with the Warning parasites icon.png Parasites Warning. These tiny enemies burst out of killed bugs and flail around, gnashing at the Dwarves.

The HP of the Larva is not linked with its host, meaning that overkilling the host will not kill the Larvae along with the host.

Combat

When killing a medium or larger enemy, a pile of blackish goo will form, and some Larvae will spawn in a group (1-3 for a medium enemy, 3-5 for larger) and leap out of the goo. After landing again, they slither rapidly towards their target. Larvae attack by leaping at a target to deal contact damage, as well as exploding on contact to deal additional damage in a small area.
