|A giant mosquito's proboscis, aerodynamic and sharp!|
A proboscis (plural proboscises or proboscides) is an item dropped by mosquitos. It is used, alongside a fungicide spray, to inject sulliuscep mushrooms in the Tar Swamp, causing them to die and respawn in another location. This is most often done when the sulliuscep is found in a location where the player is exposed to Tar Monsters or the Deranged archaeologist.
For an ironman to obtain this item for the Fairytale quest, you must acquire 600 trading sticks to buy a machete from trading Gabooty or buy one from the general store to the north for a few coins. Then you must hack medium jungle until a large mosquito appears.

- Proboscises used to have a different examine: "A giant mosquito's proboscis: aerodynamic, sharp and not very useful!" It was changed to what it is after the release of Fossil Island.
