Descendant of Ancestor of

The hook microplaque replaced its ancestor microplaque in the ukfauna of Glicker. Like its ancestor its eats the food particles in the mouth of its host. However it also eats the calcium of the hollow tooth. It will use its hooked flagellum to connect with other hook microplague and cover the entire surace of the hollow tooth. Over time this can erode and even crack the hollow tooth.

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.
