The Alien Larva is a Hardmode, post-Lunatic Cultist enemy which appears around the Vortex Pillar during the Lunar Events. They move fairly slow along the ground. A number of these spawn on the death of an Alien Queen. If unattended, they will grow into Alien Hornets, which in turn become Alien Queens later on.


  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Alien Larva: "The larval stage of the alien hornets. They may seem weak and harmless, but if ignored they will evolve into powerful beings."


  • Desktop 1.4.4: Now included in the Alien Queen family "cap"; Alien Queens will no longer release Alien Larvae upon death if enough Alien Hornets already exist.
