The mancerxia carniflorapod is the next generation mancerxia florapod. Due to the explosion of segmentocuda primus it has taken advantage of this abundant food source. Its tentacles have grown longer to it can reach its mouth and sticky cells on the ends. It waits for its prey to touch one of the 4 tentacles and then it quickly grabs it and puts it in its mouth. It can no close the top like a siphon which traps the prey inside and then it digests it slowly. Any indigestible parts get ejected from the mouth. Like its ancestors it buds its offspring and they swim around as filter feeders until they are too big and sink the the floor. It also still can photosynthesis but more and more are traveling deeper to where there are more abundant segmentocauda primus and less and less sun light.

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.
