Evolved from mancerxia amphaflorapod, the fan plent has developed huge fan-like "leaves." Its four tentacles now have the ability to draw nutrients and water right out from the ground. There are now two sexes. When it's time to reproduce, they slowly crawl over the ground until they are in the water. Both sexes release their genetic material into the water and hope for the best. It's up to the new offspring to make it from there. The offspring start out as filter feeders.

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.
