Tobimushi are creatures that live in the Sea of Corruption. Ceraine uses fragrances gathered from glands on their backs to scent her mask [1].

Real World "Tobimushi" Edit

"Tobimushi" is the Japanese language word for the springtail, a wingless hexapod of the order Collembola. Whether they are the same as the Tobimushi in Nausicaä's world is unknown.
