this was the name used by the New Republic to describe the naotebe winglings released by Nom Anor inside Settlement Thirty-two on Duro. In their pupal stage, white-eyes were simply sluglike insects. However, after emerging from their coccoons, the white-eyes were flying bugs with a pair of rasp-like pincers for jaws. These creatures had a hunger for synthetic materials like synthplas, and consumed it with gusto. The Vong hoped to destroy several of the refugee domes on Duro by letting loose the white-eyes, thereby herding all the refugees into a single location for easy capture.
