Warning! This page contains spoilers from the episode "Day" of The Acolyte. Caution is advised.

The umbramoth was a type of large moth[1] that resided in the forests of[2] the planet[4] Khofar. A group of umbramoths was known as an eclipse. As larvae, they gestated in protective cocoons on the trunks of trees until they hatched into winged creatures that were attracted to light.[2] During the High Republic Era, when a team of Jedi visited Khofar in search of the Force-sensitive assassin Mae-ho Aniseya, they were led by the tracker Bazil through[3] a grove that served as a breeding ground for an eclipse of umbramoths.[2] Aniseya's sister, Osha, touched one of the creatures, which awoke and became hostile. When Jedi Master Sol ignited his lightsaber, the umbramoth flew toward it and Sol sliced the creature in two.[3] Later another Umbramoth attacked Vernestra Rwoh from behind. She ignited her lightwhip and sliced it two, just like Sol had previously done.[5]
