This plent developed longer "roots" and started to grow thorns only on its extremities in order to allow a better setting in the ground, besides having its leaves slightly modified. The other characteristics are similar to its ancestor, the paddle plent, despite the reduced size.

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.
