|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.

- 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.
