In one of her hints, Wrinkly refers to this as the "sliding beetle" (see the quotes page for this game). While this is written as a generic identifier, the current name seems to be about that as well, so I was wondering if this wouldn't be preferable or not.

I think "Sliding Beetle" could actually be its name rather than "sliding" simply being an adjective to describe it. If they were describing it, they could've easily just referred to it as "the beetle" (there's no other beetle in the game). But every text in the game is all-caps so it's hard to say for certain.

The cited source for the current name consistently uses "Beetle" as a proper noun. PMTTYD Dark Bones.pngSig.png 23:32, 15 May 2018 (EDT)
