Diskflyers are often found on or around the Amoebic Sea. They feed by the hundreds on the "sea's" surface gel and seem to operate within very distinct four-kilometer-square territories.

The Diskflyer is a small, gregarious, migratory, disk-shaped flyer found mainly around the Amoebic Sea, as well as other regions on Darwin IV. When traveling in long flights at night, they glow.

Their dispersal across the Amoebic Sea - living in dense clouds encountered every four kilometers or so - seems to indicate a territorial pattern, though it is still uncertain as to the actual nature of the territories involved. On some occasions diskflyers will be at rest on the gel's surface, possibly feeding. It can only be guessed that the four-kilometer-wide territories represent the feeding radius of the odd flyers.

During spring in the circumpolar tundra around Glacier Cap North, the melted snow and softened ground frees not only the gently glowing buds of low, hardy tundra plants, it also frees the vast hibernating populations of diskflyers, which take wing and ascend in swirling clouds into the air.
