The Nectarous Dandelfly resembles a large dragonfly-like creature with a segmented body reminiscent of a caterpillar or honeypot ant and has the face of a butterfly with its proboscis. It is similar to both Honeywisps and Muggonflys in that they carry nectar like Honeywisps do and are shaped similarly to Muggonflys.

The Nectarous Dandelfly drifts carelessly around, paying no mind to enemies, leaders, or nearby Pikmin. If a Pikmin touches on one of its hind segments, that segment will disconnect from the body, along with all tail segments connected to it. They will all fall onto the ground and collapse into puddles of nectar. Because there are five segments, the number of Pikmin that can be flowered up depends on the location the enemy is hit. Throwing a Pikmin near the creature's head will also result in all five segments falling. After being hit once, it will swiftly fly away.

The Nectarous Dandelfly usually follows a set path. It emits an echoing chirp-like noise when nearby, which is a good indicator of its presence. The creature flies at a moderately high height, and is at most points difficult to hit with any Pikmin aside from Yellow Pikmin and Winged Pikmin. After it is hit once, it will not die, but rather fly away, not returning for the rest of the day.

The Nectarous Dandelfly appears in Pikmin Eco hardly any different from its appearance in Pikmin 3, and also replaces the role of the Honeywisp. They appear alongside their Dandelfly Larva.
