The honeywisp family (ミツムシ科?, lit.: "Nectar bug family") consists of only one known member – the eponymous Honeywisp.

Main article: Honeywisp.

The Honeywisp is a gentle creature that merely floats in the air carrying either a blob of nectar (in Pikmin) or an egg (as of Pikmin 2). It cannot harm Pikmin, but it can appear and disappear quite quickly. If a thrown Pikmin touches it, it instantly drops its nectar or egg and flies away.
