Ancestor:Descendants:

The cave palmworm split from its ancestor, the palmworm. Some of its grubs fell into sink holes leading to the limestone caves. once they grew and grew. Eventually they doubled in size to reach their leaves out of the sink holes. It still has a butt-flower which is pollinated by the bumbleworm. They drink the nectar and get some of the pollen-like gametes to stick to them. Once they are taken to another "flower" it will fertilize the eggs and then they will grow from eggs to larva. Once in larva form they will seek out a place to plant themselves in and grow forever in this spot. Due to limited holes only the tallest will survive.
