For an easy tame, wait for the Lymantria to land and then place a tent directly where he/she is at. Its stuck until the tents durability dies out, this gives you enough to build a little house around it for a safe, easy tame.
Sounds unlikely but quite true...I own a high level moth with beautiful scarlet wings. It was following me set to attack target when I encountered 3 raptors & a carno. While I was piking the rappies to death my lymantria actually killed that carno plus harvested its meat & hide. AWESOME little beast❗
I tamed the lymantria in early game valguero and it was actually quite easy. All you need to do is use a bola (I used a normal one) and then keep attacking it with a club and it should get knocked out in couple of hits. However, if your trying to tame a higher level one, bring multiple bolas. The saddle is quite cheap so it can be utilised early game.
The Lymantria is a moth-like creature that can expel a cloud of poisonous spores. While its slow flying speed make it a less suitable flying mount for transportation, survivors can use its spores to slow down enemies.
What does a Lymantria eat?In Ark: Survival Evolved, the Lymantria eats Regular Kibble, Crops, Fresh Barley, Fresh Wheat, or Soybean, Dried Wheat, Mejoberry, and Berries.
