Ash Hoppers are moderately large insects found in Vvardenfell, southern Solstheim, and the Systres Archipelago. Ash Hoppers thrive in volcanic environments. Somehow, they even found their way into the Deadlands, and are able to survive there comfortably. They have since become quite common in the realm.[1] The Amber Ash Hopper is native to the upper Ashlands and the slopes of Red Mountain and can be taken in as low maintenance pets.[2] The Deep-Moss Ash Hopper is native to the fungal-forested uplands and the coastal marshes of southern Vvardenfell. They are the mascot bugs of the Buoyant Armigers due to their admiration of their green carapaces.[3]

The Ash Hoppers of Solstheim differ in size, their head shape is somewhat similar to that of a Scrib. Unlike their docile cousins on Vvardenfell, Solstheim's hoppers are hostile to travelers and they can carry droops.[4] Their meat and jelly is used in cooking and alchemy,[5][6][7] and their chitin can be used in creating traditional Dunmer armor types. Their shells can also be made into lava-resistant overshoes.[8]
