Exclusive to: Shipwrecked.
The Poison Mosquito is a hostile Mob in the Shipwrecked DLC. It is a yellow and purple coloured version of the normal Mosquito, and its attacks Poison the target. It has a 50% chance to drop a Yellow Mosquito Sack and a 25% chance to drop a Venom Gland.
Poison Mosquitoes spawn either in Monsoon Season from Flooded tiles or via a bad outcome of the Slot Machine. Like Mosquitoes, they are fast-moving and can be caught with a Bug Net. They have a small yellow blood sac which grows with each successful attack. On the fourth successful attack, the Poison Mosquito will explode and cause additional damage to its surroundings.
- Unlike normal Mosquitoes which spawn from Ponds in the Marsh, the Poison Mosquitoes do not spawn from Tidal Pools in the Tidal Marsh.
