Meganulon (メガヌロン?, Meganuron), also known as Meganula (メガニューラ?, Meganyūra) were giant Mesozoic insect kaiju created by Toho, that first that first appeared in the in the 1956 Toho film, Rodan.

Name

The Meganulons' name comes from Meganeura, a species of extinct dragonflies from the Carboniferous period approximately 300 million years ago.

Origins

Presumably, they are, like the Rodan, from the Cretaceous Period. They were reanimated by mining operations in Kitamatsu village, Kumamoto Prefecture.

Meganulon in Rodan

The Meganulon were a race of prehistoric insects from the movie Rodan. They were first awakened during a nuclear, and they attacked and ate a few trapped miners. They escaped the mine and attacked a nearby village, and they captures another miner. The miner finds an egg in the cave, which hatches into Rodan. Rodan begins to eat the Meganulon until it has enough strength to escape the cave.

Meganulon in Godzilla vs. Megaguirus

The Meganulon were prehistoric insects that were released into the modern world through a black hole experiment. An insect lays a Meganulon egg in the forest, and a young boy found it and takes it home. The boy moves to Tokyo, and he releases it into the sewers when it starts to ooze. The egg hatches into a Meganulon, and it kills citizens of the city before turning into a Meganula.

The Meganula (メガニューラ?, Meganyūra) were the second form of the Meganulon. They attacked Godzilla because he was a source of energy. Godzilla managed to kill most of them, but some escaped with his energy. They flew to Tokyo and gave the energy to Megaguirus, and dying in the process.
