"Thank you. To the west is a giant bark mite cave. I can show you where. I need specimens. Once you get there, I'll transmit the specimens that I need and how many of each."
Risha Sinan, to a spacer[src]

A giant bark mite inside the cave

The Giant Bark Mite Cave was a natural cave on the Nabooian moon of Rori. It was populated by giant bark mites. The creatures had discovered that the cave was damp and warm, making it a perfect nursery for their brood. Those bark mite could become very dangerous when protecting their lair.[1] The scientist Risha Sinan discovered the cave and its giant bark mites after the Battle of Yavin.[2] Circa 1 ABY,[3] a spacer entered the bunker, fought some giant bark mites and collected a CY-M sword.[4]
