Detritus is, in the Creatures series, usually waste matter produced by rotting biological life. It was introduced in Creatures 2. Examples of detritus are apple cores, half-eaten tomatoes, dead critters and even dead creatures. On degrading, it may provide organic nutrients (C2) or nutrients (C3/DS) to the soil. Detritus is rarely good for a norn, and sometimes poisonous - with the exception of the Toxic Norns, which maintain a diet of almost entirely detritus. On the other hand, some critters or bugs, such as ants, are detrivores who eat detritus.
In Creatures 3, the Toilet Control can be activated to make more detritus visible to various detritivores, and Verm's Detritus Smell agent gives detritus a smell.
