Flying polyps are a race of extraterrestrial creatures. The creature first appeared in H. P. Lovecraft's "The Shadow Out of Time." The precise nature of the flying polyps is unclear; the records kept by the Great Race of Yith are notably evasive, making fearful references but shying away from actual description. They are capable of flight, although they lack wings or other appendages to facilitate this, and they were capable of controlling air currents for offensive and manipulation purposes. Although airborne, they seem to make some contact with the ground during movement, as they leave behind five-toed radial footprints wherever they go.
