The Torchbug in a Jar is a unique miscellaneous item item featured in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It contains a live Torchbug that flies around inside a jar. There are other types of jars like this that can be found throughout Skyrim; each jar contains a different insect. It is one of many insects found living in Skyrim.


The jar can be found in the Frostflow Lighthouse above the fireplace on the first floor.


There is an inscription on the inside of all of the insect jars. The markings are diagrams of the insects contained in the jars. The inscription appears to read "+", "H", "M", and "Z". The "+" represents the head of the bug, the "H" being the legs, the "M" is the wings and the "Z" represents the glowing thorax of the bug.
