I'm not sure what more you want to see. You can easily add the line:

Moon Lune Vecors Madness Spirit

to the table at the bottom of page 203. The descriptions of those beings appear on pages 246, 247 & 248.

According to ILH2 Lunar elementals have more varied abilities than listed in AR. The madness effect may just be an additional byproduct of the lunar magic.
