The Nectarous Dandelfly is a member of the Unknown Family in Pikmin 3. They are long dragonfly-like creatures that are composed of a fluffy head and five detached segments that serves as containers.
The Nectarous Dandelfly is completely harmless and spend most of its time storing Nectar inside their segmented bodies, similar to the Honeywisp. They are a great source of nectar given that each of its segment will give a drop of nectar if destroyed. The captains can throw Pikmin on one of its segment to make it drop on the ground alongside any that are found behind it. They typically travel on a single path flying around the area.
