Default Q'orl Swarmhood-Any fluff?

I noticed the name Q'orl Swarmhood on a 40k map, and was wondering if there is any fluff behind them.

All I know is the name and they're homeworld Loquit.

There is some information in the "alien book" (Xenobiology? I can't remember the name of the book, and couldn't find it quickly, someone else is sure to help. ). Not much, but interesting reading. I won't site much for copyright reasons, but they are insect like race.

That's the one.

Xenology is the only known source of Q'orl fluff. The book suggests the Eldar used elements of the Q'orl to genetically engineer the Ethereal Caste.

Their squiddys and reminds me of calamari. Anyways their a bit more advanced than the imperium and have the warp presence of a human (from what i've heard, thats all i know, don't take it to heart though.)

You... have absolutely no clue what you're talking about. Stop before your hole gets too deep.

They're insectoids, not squids.

apparently their bugs and are mind controlled by the hive queens. They maybe one of those lost tyranid fleets but who knows.

They are not Tyranids. Don't even think of implying that!

I agree, and either way, squiddys implys how they look, insectiods imply how they evolved.

They don't. Look. Like. Squids. Try knowing what you're talking about before you start speaking.
