Ancestor:Descendants:

The lithomecium split from it's ancestor, and moved to the Sublyme limestone caves. The lithomecium is larger than it's ancestor, and is capable of breaking down the calcite in limestone and use it as an energy source. Lithomeciums will also hunt hydroutine from time to time.
