Dayata are a type of fungus-like saprotroph from the swamp regions of Vivatus.
Dayata spores are ever-present in the swamp regions, hanging in the air. When they find carrion, they will settle on it and digest it. Once they run out of food, they will begin to bioluminesce, emitting a red light in an attempt to attract male Glowcroaks. They also produce a toxin, so when the male Glowcroak attempts to mate, it will become poisoned and die on the Dayata.
