The Sporegrub (オッコ?) is an enemy found in Hey! Pikmin. According to Olimar's notes, it is a mutated variant of Sheargrub. It's smaller than other mandiblards, about one third the height of Olimar. It is mostly pink with light spots, but has green menacing eyes and a brown face. It climbs down from vines, and eventually falls on the ground, ready to attack Olimar or his Pikmin. It is quite a rare enemy, only appearing in two areas.

“A mutant variety of Sheargrub that lives in certain types of grass. It guards its territory with bursts of toxic gas. I've noticed similar behavior in my dog back home, but it takes much less to set Bulbie off.”
