The Nectarous Dandelfly is a harmless enemy in Pikmin 3 that acts as a replacment for the Honeywisp. It resembles a large dragonfly-like creature with a segmented body resembling that of a catterpillar or honeypot ant, and has the face of a butterfly with its proboscis.
The Nectarous Dandelfly drifts carelessly around, not minding enemies or nearby Pikmin. If a Pikmin lands a direct hit on one of its hind segments, the segment will collapse into puddles of Nectar, the number of doses range from one to five depending on where you land your Pikmin, resulting in enough to flower around 10 to 50 Pikmin with one encounter. Throwing a Pikmin near the creature's head will result in all five segments falling down, while hitting it on the back segment will result in only that one falling down. After its nectar has been stolen, it will swiftly fly away.
