- Like the Cochineal Beetle, the Lac Beetle exists in the real world, but is a scale insect, not a beetle. It secretes lac, which can be used as dye, or converted into shellac, a brush-on colorant, food glaze, and wood finish.
- The Bestiary entry for the Lac Beetle: "These scaly insects thrive in thick subterranean foliage. Their secretions stain many materials in a beautiful violet color."
