The Puffstool is a normally harmless boss in Pikmin that when threatened is capable of converting the player's Pikmin into Mushroom Pikmin by releasing spores. It has 2 stubby legs and a big body. Converted Pikmin follow the Puffstool and attack healthy Pikmin and Captain Olimar if they get near.
The family name, Sporovid, is a reference to the real-world spores fungi use to reproduce. Aspergilla is derived from "Aspergillus", a genus belonging to many species of fungus.
