星球大战系列电影中还曾出现过一位和尤达大师属于同一种族的女性（雌性）Yaddle，官方数据库中对她的描述就是：“她和尤达大师同属于一个神秘的种族。”（The quiet Yaddle was a member of the same mysterious species as the revered Jedi Master Yoda.）
"They have Master Yoda's species listed as Lannik, and his midi-chlorian count at 4 million. That's just ridiculous!"
The Jedi Master Yoda was the best-known member of a Force-sensitive species whose true name is not recorded. Known in some sources simply as Yoda's species, this species of small carnivorous humanoids produced several well-known members of the Jedi Order during the time of the Galactic Republic.
The name and homeworld of this species remains unknown. Members of the species were very small, most standing below 70 centimeters, but had extremely long lifespans lasting many hundreds of years (though because all known members of the species were Jedi, who are known to generally have longer lifespans than what is ordinary for a species, the exact average lifespan of the species is unknown). Adult members of the species were characterized by sharp, elfin ears, ridges on their foreheads, tridactyl hands and (most commonly) anisodactyl feet. Their leathery skin and blood were both light green. Their sharp teeth pointed to a carnivorous diet. The diet of the most famous member of the species, Jedi Master Yoda, consisted of nutriment most other beings considered disgusting. Most of them, though not all, spoke an idiosyncratic dialect of Galactic Basic Standard, utilizing non-standard grammar and formalized sentence construction.
All known members were very wise and had extraordinary Force potential. Yoda, the most famous member of this species, was the Jedi Grand Master during the time of the Galactic Republic for over two centuries and one of the most powerful Jedi in the history of the Order. Master Yoda died from natural causes at the age of exactly 900 standard years.
Two other Jedi, Yaddle and Vandar Tokare, were also powerful Masters who both sat on the Jedi Councils on Coruscant and on Dantooine respectively. There was also a statue of an unknown Jedi of this species inside the Valley of the Jedi on Ruusan. A fourth Jedi Master of said species, Oteg, served during the Cold War. A fifth, lesser known Jedi of this species was the Jedi Knight Minch who served the Jedi Order in the time around 700 BBY. Although very little is known about him, he proved himself to be quite able in the ways of the Force when he single handedly defeated a Dark Jedi Master in combat. In contrast to the above mentioned masters who had all shown exceptional calmness and self control at all times, Minch was of a slightly more fiery temperament and was known to once have lost his cool when subjected to Dun Möch.
Jedi Master Yoda, for whom the species is named.
This species bore resemblance to the Lannik species, primarily their short stature, large pointed ears, and, as in the case of Yaddle, a topknot of hair. Whether or not this species was related to the Lannik is uncertain, though Yoda had at least once been mistaken for a Lannik. It is highly unlikely that there was a genetic connection between the species though, because Lannik were much more humanoid in appearance and seemed to have a different evolutionary history than that of Yoda and Yaddle's species (Lannik appeared to have evolved from simians, while the unknown tridactyl species had features that could point to an amphibian or reptilian ancestry).
