 **Scarabs**--//​Entomogrex impurus scarabaeus//​. The lowest form of Grex, Scarabs resemble large regular yellow-colored beetles. Despite not being very durable, they are nonetheless extremely vicious, and mainly serve as scouts. Their biggest threat lies in their ability to inject Grex ichor into human bodies, which then transforms their victim right down to the cellular level, allowing the Grex consciousness to reshape and control said body as it pleases, using them as infiltrators or mutating them into hybrids as it sees fit.  **Scarabs**--//​Entomogrex impurus scarabaeus//​.

-**Warriors**--//​Entomogrex impurus impurus//. The most common type of Grex, warriors have carapaces tough enough to resist small arms fire, although their fronts are more vulnerable, and are strong enough to rend men limb from limb and peel open armor plating. They are also capable of fusing themselves with basic human weapons, firing organic projectiles. ​+**Warriors**--//​Entomogrex impurus impurus//. The most common type of Grex, warriors have carapaces tough enough to resist ​some small arms fire, although their fronts are more vulnerable, and are strong enough to rend men limb from limb and peel open armor plating. They are also capable of fusing themselves with basic human weapons, firing organic projectiles. ​
  
-**Decabites**--//​Entomogrex impurus macrognathus//​. Also nicknamed '​Jabberwocks'​ by British soldiers. Serving as the Grex answer to armor or fortifications,​ Decabites are capable of spitting out searing acid capable of burning through most surfaces.+'​Praetorian Grex' are warriors that thus far confined to the area around the three primary Grex hives, appearing to be '​Alpha'​ creatures developed even further. Likely the first Grex to make emerge at each landing site, their apex state has increased with time, rendering them as heavily armored, very fast, and exceedingly lethal, but localized in defence of the hive.

Serving as the Grex answer to armor or fortifications,​ Decabites are capable of spitting out searing acid capable of burning through most surfaces. Further grown '​Bulls'​ or '​Alphas'​ also sport cranial growths for bio-electric discharges.
  
 **Locusts**--//​Entomogrex impurus volans//. Grex flyers, Locusts are capable of dogfighting with aircraft and move at high speed, attacking ground forces from above or performing aerial recon. ​ **Locusts**--//​Entomogrex impurus volans//.

-**Stingwraiths**--//​Entomogrex impurus sicarius//. Grex assassins, Stingwraiths are capable of flight, invisibility,​ and can psionically immobilize all people in a small radius. Nevertheless,​ they are not very durable, and are deployed carefully. '​Bull'​ Stingwraiths are termed 'Alpha Wraiths',​ utilizing further enhanced psionic abilities such as mind control or molecular disintegration,​ with only one such creature ​depicted thus far.+**Stingwraiths**--//​Entomogrex impurus sicarius//.

 **Bombardiers**--//​Entomogrex impurus maximus//. Literally serving as the heavy artillery of the Grex, Bombardiers are building-sized beetle like creatures, capable of shrugging off field gun shells and fusing themselves with artillery weapons, firing organic ordnance of varying kind.  **Bombardiers**--//​Entomogrex impurus maximus//.

 +**Ultracimex**--//​Entomogrex impurus colossicus//​. The largest variant of Grex yet encountered,​ with only one or two believed to exist, Ultracimex are around one hundred and forty meters tall, with immense and hardened crustacean-like thoraxes. Bought forth to destroy key strategic points, these creatures are slow but very resilient. ​
 +
 +**Queen**--//​Entomogrex impurus imperatrix//​. Not yet directly encountered by human forces, the existence of queens has nevertheless been divulged, with them serving as the nexus points for Grex nests and swarms on a given front. ​
  
 **Organic Bomb**--This as yet unnamed type of Grex is apparently a Bombardier offshoot swelled up with acid, which it spreads over a wide area when it detonates itself. It is apparently incapable of defending itself and must be positioned by other Grex, limiting its use. **Organic Bomb**--This as yet unnamed type of Grex is apparently a Bombardier offshoot swelled up with acid, which it spreads over a wide area when it detonates itself.

Sac-like aerial iterations have eventually been encountered,​ engulfing and dissolving targets in air or sometimes on the ground.

 +**Wireworms**--A rudimentary Grex sub-species,​ wireworms are long, thin tendril-like organisms lined with poisonous barbs that lurk in Grex-infested areas, resembling living barbed wire strands. Aerial versions have eventually been encountered,​ as larger, segmented creatures riding air currents

They are essentially individual ​Grex that, as a result of their age and perseverance,​ are generally larger and tougher than the norm, sporting individual mutations and abilities such as tusks and projectable spines. Some of these earn reputations and names, such as a Bull Decabite at the Australian front nicknamed 'Big Edward'​or an Alpha Wraith on the Western Front referred to as '​Sneaky Willy'
