Centifly family

From Pikipedia, the Pikmin wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The centifly family is a family of species that appears in Hey! Pikmin only. So far, this family is made of only one species, the Adult Centipare. Members belong to the prunus genus.

Interestingly, this creature, which is the adult version of the Centipare, is classified in different family from its younger version. This is likely to be a mistake.
