— In-game description
- Culicidae is the scientific name for the mosquito family (there are several thousand species of mosquito); several creatures resembling large mosquitoes can be seen encased inside the short bow from either side.
- Until the 29th July 2014 update, this bow was anomalously named the Vespidae, after a large family of wasps, despite the recipe requiring Ambrite Fossilized Mosquito and mosquitoes being encased in the bow.
