The feathers of the wingworm have stiffened. Also, the wingworm can slightly move the "wings", letting it glide when the wings are held horizontally or fall to the ground when the wings are held vertically. Another change was the streamlined body, allowing the wingworm to travel faster and farther than the gliding sagworm. The wingworm uses the same chemical signal as its ancestor, and when it smells it while gliding, it tries to glide even further to find an untouched location where it can land and consume plants. It spread over almost the whole of Glicker, but was hindered by the Ittiz Desert and Rocky to get onto Wright.
