The chitjorns genus group has replaced its ancestors the chitjorn, solumcrusta, ballcrust, jellobelly, towercrusta and other solumcrusta decedents. They primarily grow in barren biomes on land however they can grow in marine environments as well. They have an exoskeleton made of chitin which protects it and helps it keep its shape. Like its ancestors it absorbs red light with its green chloroplasts and reproduces via asexual budding. They are completely immobile and form a hard crust over whatever they grow on. They need very little nutrients and can grow on the surfaces of rocks as well as in soil.
