The Lac Beetle is an enemy that spawns rarely in the Underground Jungle biome. When killed, it will drop the Violet Husk, which can be used to make Violet Dye.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Like the Cochineal Beetle, the Lac Beetle exists in the real world, but is a scale insect, not a beetle. It secretes lac, which can be used as dye or converted into shellac, a brush-on colorant, food glaze and wood finish.

History[edit | edit source]

  • 3DS-Release: Introduced, but doesn’t drop the Violet Husk.
