There are several varieties of Squid Molluscs to be found around the galaxy – notably in the Formorian Frontier 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) but can be hard to spot as they are smaller than the non-organics found in clouds.
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 Squid Molluscs these are the traits:
- Retreats if attacked
- Retreats if approached with headlights on
