Silk Oxydynia (オキシディニア亜種, Okishidinia Ashu) is a Subspecies of Oxydynia.
Silk Oxydynia is identified by its pearly white carapace and black extremities, mainly its pincers, pedipalps, lower legs, back spines, and tail stinger. Its stinger is more bulbous with a small pointed tip compared to standard Oxydynia which have a thinner, narrower stinger. It also lacks a pair of tail pincers.
Silk Oxydynia have evolved the ability to produce an adhesive silk-like substance in favor of the corrosive acid the normal variety is known for.
This Subspecies prefers more temperate areas such as the Great Forest, the Swamp, and both Jungles.
Silk Oxydynia is actually not as aggressive as its relative, preferring to incapacitate predators with its silk before fleeing.
- Silk Oxydynia will shoot globs of silk from its stinger. Being hit directly by these silk globs will inflict the Webbed status. If they miss the hunter or Palico it will land on the ground and form a puddle. Stepping on this puddle will inflict Silked status.
- Its pedipalps, forelimbs pincers, and stinger can be broken.
- Silk Oxydynia's roar requires HG Earplugs to block.
