The Aquavirius Maggot was supposedly a magical creature that resembles a brain.[1]


On the 18 June 1996, While in the Department of Mysteries in the British Ministry of Magic, Luna Lovegood incorrectly identified the pale blobs floating in the brain tank in the Department of Mysteries as being Aquavirius Maggots though they were in fact just brains.[1] The Aquavirius Maggot was one of the many strange creatures in which Luna Lovegood and her father Xenophilius Lovegood believed in though many others did not.
