The temeenii süül (тэмээний сүүл; Mongolian: "camel's tail") is a death worm reported from Mongolia's Ömnögovi Aimag province. It is described as being smaller than the allghoi khorkhoi, and is grey in colour. CFZ member Dave Churchill writes that, although it may be a species distinct from the allghoi khorkhoi, it is more likely to be a juvenile, or a sexually dimorphic opposite sex.[1] The name temeenii süül mogoi ("camel's tail snake") is also applied to a species of sand boa (Eryx sp.).[2]

Other death worms include the allghoi khorkhoi, the shar khorkhoi, the short grey snake, and the winged salami.
