Catermen are fleshy, 12'-15' long insectoids that "stand" 6'-7' upright.  They can cling to all but the slickest surfaces. Gregarious and chatty, catermen collect stories and tall tales from travelers.  One can always determine a caterman's mood by the movements of its antennae and tail-whips.

Catermen spit strong, sticky strands of silk at distances up to 15'.  Creatures caught within become cocooned, and can't move or attack.  Anyone with a STR of 16 or less breaks free in 2d4 turns; those with higher scores do so in 1d4+2 rounds.

Upon encountering sentient mutant plants, catermen ask ever so politely if they can take a small nibble (which only inflicts 1d3 damage) of their personages.  They relish the flavors of exotic vegetation as a sommelier does wine, you see.
