The picture for the Loogaroo is actually a night hag from the D&D 3rd edition MM. Bah I say.

Also, these listings of monsters are really disappointing. Not a word about hit dice or what treasure types they drop!

This is relevant to my interests! Thank you!

This list is missing the Wagyl, the great river snake that threatens to destroy us all.

Chupacabra is Spanish for "Goatse Sucker".

I can add a few more from Norwegian folklore:

Huldra, who appears as a beautiful girl with a tail who lives in the woods
Nøkken, a water spirit who plays on the violin and lures people to drown in small lakes
Vardøger, the "spirit predecessors" that sometimes appear somewhere before the person they represent.

It is missing the Capra Barbana from the Italian Alps, a huge goat with iron teeth and a wooly beard. The woolly beard does not seem monstrous enough, but that is the way the rhyme goes:

"La caora Barbana coi denti de fero e la barba de lana"
