All members of this family are in the Melissans genus.
The Spornet is an enemy found in Hey! Pikmin. It is a small flying insectoid creature with a glowing abdomen. It attacks by hovering around and dropping toxic puffballs on Pikmin. They often fly very high, so Yellow Pikmin and Winged Pikmin are often provided in areas with it.
The family's name comes from "fuzz", referring to members of the family and their fuzzy abdomens, while "buzz" likely comes from the appearence of members, which resemble bees. The Japanese name translates to cotton dropping family, which is pretty self explanatory.
