Reproduction Asexual: Spores


Evolved from k. symbiotae. This swift filter-feeder possesses a unique twisted tail. Composed of multiple cells (each one originally an 'arm' of the k. symbiotae). The remaining arm has become a funnel to capture edible particles and cells. The nodules behind the funnel are chemo-receptors. When they detect the 'smell' of debris a simple chemical signal-chain is set off which causes a change in the motion of the mega-flagellum and sends the organism in a different direction. This is the humble beginning of a rudimentary nervous system. Reproduction involves the growth of a spore producing cell at the twisted tail-base, which sheds spores into the water to grow into new k. velox.

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.
