There are several varieties of Bulb Molluscs to be found around the galaxy – notably in the Inner Orion-Perseus Conflux sector. They appear inside Notable Stellar Phenomena. Look for the largest concentration of signals inside the phenomena and you should find them (if they are present).
In-game codex information shows that the different variants appear near different planet types, and have different requirements for Star Types – more can be found in the game codex.
Space lifeforms often have discoverable traits – scan them with the Composition Scanner when they are doing something to reveal the traits. For Bulb Molluscs these are the traits:
- Retreats if attacked
- Releases spores on when scanned or approached with / without lights
If you have Research Limpets you can sample the Molluscs and get Mollusc Brain Tissue, Soft Tissue and Fluid.
