The mancerxia florapod is the next generation of mancerxia majorsorbus. It has traded its adult life as a swimming filter feeder for a sun absorbing plant. Unlike the purple plants it has small tentacles on the bottom in which it can use to walk around on the boom of the sea floor and move to where the light is. It sill has 2 light spots to detect where the light is and its fins have grown larger into "leaves".

It has a unique reproduction cycle where it buds its offspring inside the tube behind the filter membrane When the bud is large enough it will break off and fall behind the parent and swim off to filter on its own. Once large enough it will sink to the boom of the floor and grow its fins larger to absorb more sunlight as well as the eye spot move from the the side to the top.

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.
