Mi-Go (The Fungi from Yuggoth):

“They were pinkish things about five feet long; with crustaceous bodies bearing vast pairs of dorsal fins or membraneous wings and several sets of articulated limbs, and with a sort of convoluted ellipsoid, covered with multitudes of very short antennae, where a head would ordinarily be.... As it was, nearly all the rumours had several points in common; averring that the creatures were a sort of huge, light-red crab with many pairs of legs and with two great bat-like wings in the middle of their back..."

- H.P. Lovecraft, “The Whisperer in Darkness”

5 ft. long? Meaning these things are about the size of a large/medium dog? That includes it's tail?

What am I talking about? This is a psionic creature that can will me to having a seizure before putting my brain in a jar.
