I’ve been experimenting with the breeding system, and found that some species/breeds can be readily interbred, which you may not initially be aware of without attempting it yourself.

  1. I believe that there is only one final complex I need to add, and that is the surprising “Arachnid Crab Complex” which supposedly contains the Cave Arachnid and the Scavenger Crab, but I need to test it out myself because those Insectoids don’t really look anything alike and AFAIK they are never stated to be related in-game.
