The mancerxia majorsorbus is the next generation of mancerxia sorbus. It is the same in all ways except that it is much larger in size so it can absorb more sunlight. It also has more concentrated photosynthetic cells on its back. It has evolved very primitive light sensor cells that can tell which way the sun is so it will swim in the right way. It eats anything it can grab in its filter membrane. Like its ancestor, it reproduces with a bud that grows 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.

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.
