"The Pycan space moth is an insect that is adapted to life in the vacuum of space. "
Although a reasonable inference, I don't think there is anything in canon to support this.
Just because it's called a moth, doesn't mean it's a true insect of any kind, and it may have been engineered, not adapted, and for all we know, it drifted a 1/2 light-year through a dense gaseous nebula, not hard vacuum.....--184.108.40.206 14:05, December 4, 2009 (UTC)reader
- We take the words in the name on their face unless there is hard evidence to the contrary. In this case, unless someone described qualities of this creature vastly different than those implied in the name, we go with the meaning the name suggests.--31dot 19:13, December 4, 2009 (UTC)
