Blizzard Fly
Habitat:Polar and high-altitude, low-temperature regions.
Description:Greatly resembling the common housefly in most respects, this entirely white specie seems a study in anatomical economy. Their probosci also serve as genitalia, waste secreters, and quite likely, a tactile sensory organs. Their white carapace, notably denser than their southern counterparts', often glistens and twinkles in direct sunlight, giving it a crystalline appearance.
Notes:The torso and wings seem to secrete a built-in anti-freeze, so they can survive in the cold, and in sufficient numbers, they swarm, their light-colored bodies mimicing snowflakes.
