JP Other M Guide 166

They are only named in artwork present on page 166 of the Nintendo Official Guidebook for Metroid Other M: "Appears in Sector 1. If you destroy Rio nests, and they appear from nearby ducts."

The Zuru (ヅル Zuru) is a small, harmless insectoid encountered in Sector 1 / Biosphere on the BOTTLE SHIP. They strongly resemble both a terrestrial Trilobite and another BOTTLE SHIP creature known as a Wadge; unlike those two creatures, though, the Zuru is more yellow in color and has a stalk with a luminescent bulb on the end protruding from its head, somewhat similar to an anglerfish's lure. An endless line of the creatures can be seen slowly crawling out of a Morph Ball tunnel in the room Adam authorizes access to after the first encounter with Little Birdie. While they do not interact with Samus in any way (although they will explode when shot at), they serve as a hint to where she needs to go next, as they are seen dropping from a tunnel in a nearby wall leading to a Holographic Generator. They will disappear in all subsequent visits to the room.

Metroid: Other M Premiere Edition refers to the Zuru as "little fireflies."
