Lumites are moth like creatures that appear in Metroid Prime 2: Echoes. They are capable of photosynthesis and, when in light, are capable of invisibility. Like other invisible targets, Samus can lock onto Lumites with the Dark Visor. While out of light, they fire projectiles to defend themselves, but in light, Lumites can fire bursts of energy.
- "Photosynthetic flying insectoid. Relatively harmless in shadows, powerful and invisible in the light. The Lumite thrives on light, and can render itself invisible to most predators while within it. When out of the light, the creature is relatively harmless, relying on a crudely spat chunk of biomatter to defend itself. Once in the light, it can channel large amounts of solar energy into a deadly blast." — Logbook "Lumite" (Metroid Prime 2: Echoes)
