The dung mites were insects native to Talus. They were a subspecies of the decay mites.
Dung mites possessed eight limbs in total; they walked on six legs, and had two grasping arms with pincers. They were a genetic cousin to the decay mite, also of Talus.
Dung mites appeared in the video game Star Wars Galaxies, a massively multiplayer online role-playing game developed by Sony and published by LucasArts, prior to its closure on December 15, 2011.
