The darkpalm has split from the shallowpalm. Its leaves have changed to a very dark blue, allowing it to absorb even more sunlight than before. Its two extra trunks have merged into the base of the tree and have had their tops form a sort of bowl on the top, which it uses to collect rainwater. The segments have a more pronounced edge, which can also collect rainwater. It lives in the rainforest.

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.
