Desidae are fan-made temnocerans, created by FeralJinouga.
Giant Club Arachnid.
Nerscylla, Warclub Desidae
Desidae are large, flat bodies temnocerans that bear a striking resemblance to real world amblypygids. Their carapaces are dark brown with lighter brown spots on them, and often have moss growing on them. They have four legs, which are long and thin, and angled in such a way that allows the desidae to remain close to the ground. They also have two large, club like claws that are covered in long spikes. Their last set of limbs is very unique, being covered in a multitude of sensory hairs, and are used in a similar fashion to an insects antenna. These limbs are incredibly thin, three times the size of the body, and incredibly flexible. In front of their mouths are two claws that are used to mash food into a pulp. Similar to scorpions, they also have pectines on their underside, and use these to track pheromone trails. They are theorized to have these sensory organs to compensate for their poor vision.
Desidae are opportunistic animals, eating almost anything they can get their claws on. They have been observed using both ambush tactics and full on aggression to capture prey, as well as eating the left overs of other monsters. desidae are not entirely carnivorous however, and will eat almost anything, ranging from Honey to bark to insects. Interestingly, desidae care for and clean their eggs, but do not care for their young once they've hatched. Juvenile desidae have become a major pest in some regions as they break into farms, destroying the crops and attacking the livestock.
Temnocerans that will eat anything they can get their club like claws on. Juveniles are a pest in some regions, as they break into farms and terrorize the livestock.
Desidae inhabit almost any temperate region, such as the Sunken hollow or Deserted Island.
Desidae are opportunistic omnivores, leading a constant search for food. They prefer to sit and wait for prey to come by, but have been observed actively hunting. They predominantly feed on Slagtoth or Aptonoth (depending on the region), along with honey and nectar. They are in the middle of the food chain, and are prey for a variety of monsters.
Desidae have also evolved long, antenna like limbs and pectines that allow them to easily track the pheromones of prey and mates. When they find prey, they use their massive, club like claws to crush it, and then use their unique mouth parts to turn it into a mushy pulp. when Desidae are being attack by a predator, they will release a potent, foul smelling gas that repels most animals.
