Información básica[editar | editar código]

Dossier[editar | editar código]

Esta sección prentende ser una copia exacta de lo que la sobreviviente Helena, autora de los Dossiers de Dinosaurios. Puede que haya algunas discrepancias entre este texto y las las condiciones actuales de las criaturas.


Meganeura quatpenna is an especially large species of dragonfly. Actually, it is a type of griffinfly, an extinct species of invertebrate that looked similar to dragonflies. Like most griffinflies, Meganeura is carnivorous, but it is typically not aggressive towards humans unless provoked or challenged for food. It lives primarily in the wetter, heavily wooded areas, such as the jungles. Meganeura is a natural predator of most of the smaller insects on the island.

Though not often aggressive, Meganeura will not turn down a free meal. They quickly appear in large numbers to scavenge off the victims of Pulmonoscorpius, rendered unconscious and unable to defend themselves. Of course the insects do have to avoid the Pulmonoscorpius itself. I have noticed it is unwise to disturb a flock of feeding Meganeura.


The size of the insects on the island confounds me. The way these creatures diffuse oxygen should limit their size but Meganeura (and other bugs) seem to be able to advance beyond this restraint. If there is more oxygen in the air this could explain Meganeura's growth.

Behavior[editar | editar código]

Meganeura are usual neutral creatures, although they like to feast on nearby corpses, attacking those who get near their feast including other creatures and survivors. This can be troublesome when hunting as you may suddenly find a swarm of hungry Meganeura trying to forcefully claim your kill. A swarm that finishes devouring a corpse will attack any nearby survivor. However, when touching water, Meganeura will not attack, even if you attack them back. Likewise, walking on water while being attacked will cause the Meganeura to almost instantly lose interest in you.

Appearance[editar | editar código]

The Meganeura is a "small" insect, or at least small for Ark standards, with an elongated body, 2 large compound eyes, 2 pairs of wings, and 3 pairs of legs; the whole makeup of the Meganeura greatly resembles that of dragonflies, though the Meganeura is in fact a griffin fly, an extinct group of insects.

Color Scheme and Regions[editar | editar código]

Patrones de Color por Región

Esta seccíon muestra los colores naturales del Meganeura así como las variaciones de acuerdo a la región. Por señalar un ejemplo, las regiones abajo marcadas con rojo sobre un Meganeura albino. Los cuadrados de color que se muestran debajo de la descripción de cada región son los colores que serán utilizados para que el Meganeura genere un rango general de su esquemas de color al momento de spawnear. Mueva el cursor sobre un color para mostrar su nombre e ID.

Los admins de un servidor pueden utilizar la información de las regiones en la consola con los comandos Console Command "cheat SetTargetDinoColor <ColorRegion> <ColorID>".
Por ejemplo, "cheat SetTargetDinoColor 0 6" hará que el color de la región seleccionada del Meganeura "thorax and sides" magenta.

Combat[editar | editar código]

This section describes how to fight against the Meganeura.

General[editar | editar código]

On their own, Meganeuras are neutral unless provoked. However, Meganeuras are scavengers and they will swarm freshly killed corpses and will become aggressive if you try to harvest the corpse while they feed. If you don't want to fight, back away from swarmed corpses so the Meganeuras don't attack you. Take care when entering the swamps as they contain large numbers of Meganeuras that can and will kill higher level dinos alarmingly fast if one does not escape or fight back sufficiently.

Strategy[editar | editar código]

Attacking one Meganeura will cause other Meganeuras in the area to become hostile, and they have quite the high aggro range. If you kill one in one hit however, the others won't attack you. If they swarm, they will generally target your head. Using a Spear.png Spear/Pike.png Pike and stabbing wildly into the air can usually take them out fairly quickly. If you happen to have a tamed dinosaur who's attack has a large Area of Effect, like the Stegosaurus.png Stegosaurus or Ankylosaurus.png Ankylosaurus, you can easily take out entire swarms of Meganeuras.

Weaponry[editar | editar código]

It is a better idea to use shorter ranged melee weapons that have a far reach (spears, pikes); they can be hard to hit with ranged weapons like bows.

Dangers[editar | editar código]

A Meganeura bite will poison you and reduce your Stamina.png Stamina, making it harder to escape if you get swarmed. Their tendency to swarm and aggro additional Meganeuras also makes it likely that you'll be fighting much more than you had wanted.

A swarm of Meganeuras can easily cripple and take down weaker flyers like a Pteranodon.png Pteranodon thanks to their stamina draining attacks and decent damage. Be wary if you land one near a swarm of them.

Weakness[editar | editar código]

The biggest weakness of the Meganeura is its low Health.png Health. It usually only takes a few hits to kill even a high level one and any decently sized tame with good AOE can destroy a swarm with little hindrance.

Utility[editar | editar código]

Roles[editar | editar código]

  • Cementing Paste Collection Source: Meganeura like other arthropods can yield Chitin.png Chitin when killed. The Meganeura is also one of the best candidates for efficiently farming large amounts ofCementing Paste.png Cementing Paste when a Beelzebufo.png Beelzebufo is used, as they are fairly common and are attracted to corpses and recently killed prey, allowing them to be concentrated and harvested in one place.
  • Swarming Tactics: Though almost always impractical, they can be quite the nuisance if attracted to a certain area by a corpse, becoming aggressive.

Notes/Trivia[editar | editar código]

For information pertaining specifically to the real-world Meganeura, see the relevant Wikipedia article

  • Dossier revealed on 06/10/2015 [1]
  • It is one of four creatures currently able to be harvested by Beelzebufo.png Beelzebufo for Cementing Paste.png Cementing Paste, the others being the Jug Bug.png Jug Bug, Titanomyrma.png Titanomyrma, and Glowbug.png Glowbug.
  • While in numbers, they will become much more aggressive.
  • Most griffinflies were not significantly larger than modern dragonflies, though the largest, including Meganeura, could reach wingspans of up to 70 cm (28 in). It is controversial among the scientific community as to exactly how these insects got to such sizes, even though the largest griffinflies were still small compared to other giant arthropods of the Carboniferous and Permian. Theories that attempt to explain such gigantism range from lack of predators, to increased atmospheric oxygen and/or pressure providing more growth, to protection against said over pressurization and/or oxygenation. All said theories could potentially have been at play.
  • Likely based on the Giant Griffinfly, Meganeura Monyi.
  • Meganeura were once thought to be an early ancestor of all dragonflies, and its order named Protoodonatoptera. However, both have been reclassified under the Odonatoptera superorder and split into seperate orders, with dragonflies and damselflies in the Odonata order and griffinflies in the Meganisoptera order. Griffinflies are now considered ancient close cousins to the modern dragonfly group but not their direct ancestors.
  • Like the other insects in Ark Meganeura has adapted to eating dead things, most of the other insects eat Spoiled Meat.png Spoiled Meat while Meganeura will fancy a whole corpse/dead body. However, it should noted that it is more likely that Meganeura hunted most of the time, as stated in Helena's dossier.
  • Though it is rarely seen, the Meganeura can indeed land and walk on the ground, though usually this is brief.
  • Despite how swift dragonflies are and most griffinflies probably were, the Ark Meganeura is a tad slow and can be outrun by most creatures and survivors.
