There are several varieties of Bullet Molluscs to be found around the galaxy – notably in the Outer Orion 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) though they are smaller than the non-organic items and can be hard to spot.
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 Bullet Molluscs these are the traits:
- Attracted to ship shields and drains them when in proximity
- Retreats when attacked
- Moves without apparent purpose
