Eyecones are small, parasitic insects that infest larger plants (usually conifers...and often of the killer-mutant variety) to leech the fluids within.  They are virtually indistinguishable from vegetative growths, and Surprise on a 1-5 on 1d6.

Aggressive and opportunistic feeders, eyecones drop on passersby en masse.  If an eyecone makes a successful attack against a target, it burrows into the victim, and does automatic damage each round until removed or killed.   Those wearing metal- or plastic-based armor are resistant to this effect.

Eyecones are also far quicker than they have any right to be, and sprint after foes on spindly "branches".

Mutations:  None
