The photosynthesis of the algaaquila works differently from the one of the purple plants and plents. It absorbs all light, making it look black. However, its photosynthesis isn't as efficient as the others', and it couldn't displace other plants. Due to the fact that it heats up faster and is more heavy, it can live in places which would be too cold for other plants. It often covers big areas, preventing the growth of other plants.

Living Relatives (click to show/hide)

These are randomly selected, and organized from lowest to highest shared taxon. (This may correspond to similarity more than actual relation)

None found. Note that this does not necessarily mean it has no living relatives at all, but that, assuming all taxonomy is filled in, its entire phylum is extinct; any relatives it does have likely do not resemble it.
