"You caught # Lanayru Ant! It's said these ants store water deep in their nests, allowing them to thrive even in the intense heat of the open desert."

— In-game description

The Lanayru Ant is a collectible insect found in Skyward Sword. They are very common and can be found all across Lanayru Desert,[1] and are easily caught with the Bug Net.[2] They are found both above and below ground and can be unearthed using the Digging Mitts or Mogma Mitts. They are used in upgrading Potions, specifically the Revitalizing Potion and Air Potion.


  1. "Oh...if you want to infuse that potion, I'm afraid you're still one ingredient short. This brew still needs just a whiff of Lanayru Ant. According to my secret infuser's handbook, these bugs live in large groups and dwell somewhere sandy below the clouds." — Bertie, Skyward Sword.
  2. "Species name: Lanayru Ant Sensitivity to human presence: 60% Usable as a potion ingredient. I project a 50% probability of failing to notice this insect simply because it's small. After discovering its location, you can catch it comparatively easily." — Fi, Skyward Sword.
