Their names seem to be related to weaving and to how they move; every known spider's name ends in the letters 'ox' or 'ex'.
The Flyers and The Crawlers
Their bodies are filled with a "strange blue liquid",  though it is unknown whether this is their blood or some other substance. They "speak" by rubbing their legs over their chests to produce a humming sound; like cricket chirps , but with deeper and more varied pitches. The spinners are known to be reluctant to take sides in Underland politics, though their reasoning is unclear.
They have a low tolerance for noise and useless chatter which they associate with political discussion , but they are never openly hostile towards other creatures. In Gregor and the Code of Claw , the spiders use their semi-neutral status to their advantage by aiding both sides of the war between the humans and gnawers, and thus endearing themselves to whomever might win.
They eventually choose to fight with their longtime trading partners the humans, and against the rats who attacked them during Gregor the Overlander.
The Brotherhood of the Fringe
This change of sides is considered an unprecedented achievement for the humans. Fireflies are known as shiners in the Underland. They are very self-centered and argumentative creatures. Shiners have a love for cake, or any food in general, and are extremely lazy. For these reasons, other species often do not trust them, as it takes very little to sway their allegiance one way or the other.
Females are only able to produce one color of light, while males can choose any hue they wish. Lizards are known as hissers in the Underland. Like their Overland counterparts, these reptiles are cold-blooded. Several other Underland species are mentioned in the series. The sentient species include moles known as diggers ,  scorpions called stingers ,  and ants called cutters. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Main article: Ripred.

These are certainly not fungus gnat larvae, which are fast and worm-like. I have attached two photos, one I managed to catch of one of the flyers, the crawlers have not held still long enough to capture, but I have attached a stock photo of a fed tick - I know that is not what this is, but is the closest comparison I can find.
They are very small and have large, swollen abdomens that are white or brownish and somewhat translucent-looking, with the legs clustered to the front. The smallest ones are simply white moving specks. Soil drenches with neem and a hydrogen peroxide solution have so far failed to kill the crawlers in the soil.

Plants most highly affected have begun to look anemic, so they would seem to be doing some damage.
