A Vampyr Mosp is a fanged wasp-moth magical hybrid.[1]


They are giant, aggressive insects who will try to sting any individual they come into close contact with; the effect of these stings can be quite painful to the victim. They are very attracted by the smell of certain flowers.[1]

There are two known kinds of Vampyr Mosps, the Purple Vampyr Mosp and the Red Vampyre Mosp. The Purple variants are usually less aggressive than Red variants.[1]

Vampyr Mosp
They may be native to Scotland, in wet places; Hogwarts has a reasonable amount of them in the sewers and pipes, and in the Herbology Greenhouses.[1] Many also inhabit large hives in the Forbidden Forest.[2]
