The Paper Lantern Bug is a Common bug in Palia.

–In-Game Item Description

Found along the coast and in forests of Bahari bay during the evening and night.

Bug Catching


Paper Lantern Bugs can be found from 6:00 PM - 3:00 AM along the coastline of Bahari Bay, including Beachcomber Cove, Lighthouse Lagoon, and Coral Shores. They can also be found during these same hours in the forests of north Bahari Bay, such as the Statue Garden, Proudhorn Pass, the Thorny Thicket, The Outskirts, and the Flooded Steps.


The blue glow of Paper Lantern Bugs is a common sight at night throughout much of Bahari Bay.

Paper Lantern Bugs float lazily through the air until alerted by player movement or Smoke Bombs, at which time they will begin to flee. Paper Lantern Bugs bounce up and down as they fly, making them quite tricky to hit. Thankfully, Paper Lantern Bugs move relatively slowly, giving players plenty of time to properly aim and throw additional Smoke Bombs before the Paper Lantern Bug disappears into the night sky.


Paper Lantern Bug does not grant any Silk Thread when caught. There is a chance Paper Lantern Bug will grant a Bahari Nettle Flower Bahari Nettle Flower when caught.


Starred versions of this bug can be placed as a decor.

Terrarium size: 5x4 (Medium, Rectangular)
