The rainbow-winged worm split off from the twelve-winged worm. During its evolution, the rainbow-winged worm became slightly bigger than its ancestor, it has developed a taste for nectar, which helps spread pollen to other plants. Its wings have become different colors and can rotate 50 degrees forward and backward so that they can attract other rainbow-winged worms from a distance. There is however a drawback to their colorful wings: their bright colors can attract predators easily. During mating season, they gather in huge groups to mate and lay their eggs. After a week they die, but the eggs hatch and the cycle continues.
