Variant of Buzzer

Stingers are red variants of Buzzers found in Land's End in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. They have low physical attack, though they may also use the moves Thornet and Funguspike to inflict the Poison and Mushroom status effects respectively. Stingers usually fight either with other Stingers or random monsters like Fink Flowers. If their allies are defeated, they usually flee rather than fight.

These seem to be called Stingers because of their pointy barbs. But Buzzers also have stingers, and Stingers make buzzing sounds, so...
