Hupyrian beetle snuff was a narcotic substance made from the dried and crushed bodies of Hupyrian wood beetles. Hupyrian beetle snuff was first discovered by the Ferengi race when the Ferengi Alliance sent armed troops to participate in the Hupyrian Conflict. Grand Nagus Oblat decreed that all troops would receive a can of beetle snuff a week, causing enlistment to soar, and leading to quick victory by the Ferengi/Hupyrian Friendship Brigade over the Hupyrian People's Unity Front. (DS9 reference: Legends of the Ferengi)

Hupyrian beetle snuff was enjoyed by Ferengi as early as the mid 22nd century. (ENT episode: "Acquisition") "Win or lose, there's always Hupyrian beetle snuff" was the 65th Rule of Acquisition. (DS9 reference: Legends of the Ferengi)

Grand Nagus Zek was a heavy user of Hupyrian beetle snuff. (DS9 episode: "Rules of Acquisition", et. al.)

Rakhal, a member of the crew of the Qualor's Pride, had a bad reaction to Hupyrian beetle snuff he had gotten from some Ferengi gamblers. (NF - No Limits short story: "Out of the Frying Pan")

In the short story, the character refers to "Huyperian beetle snuff." This inconsistency can be attributed to the characters unfamiliarity at this time (2363) with Ferengi culture, and/or the Hupyrian race.
