The White Espinas is the second subspecies of Espinas and appears from MHFO 5.5. It has a milky white underbelly, with a very light grey carapace, finished with light purple thorns. This creature marks a completely new challenge for hunters. As is well known in Monster Hunter Frontier, a monster with a different color doesn't change in appearance alone.
This new Espinas inhabits the Great Forest Peak just like the Azure Hypnocatrice. It uses moves similar to that of the other Espinas, but also a new, exclusive attack, that could devastate whole hunting parties, and change the course of the entire quest... it flies into the air, and fires a huge reddish-purple fireball to the floor; the blast created by this explosion fires a huge wave of fire and poison which envelopes vast swathes of the area. After the initial wave, various spots will still be on fire and poisonous, making them painful to traverse.
- Its new devastating fireball is extinguished by the rain, puddles, and ponds, possibly suggesting that in a dry area, the fireball can be even more threatening.
- When breaking its chest, it seems to have purple blood, but when breaking the horns, back, and wings, it draws out red blood.
- It's possible the purple blood may not be blood at all, but poison.
- Notice that it drinks some water on the ground after the move is performed.
- Players can only hunt the White Espinas once they reach HR61+.
- An interesting fact is that its battle theme is the same as Lao Shan Lung's in Area 4.
- It is unclear whether it is an albino variation or just a new sub species.
