The marinupede microplaque has replaced its ancestor the microplaque in the seas, and lives mostly in pedes' and centrifins' mouths. Like its ancestor, it's growing into large colonies covering the surface of the mouth and gums in a clear "biofilm". It eats not only the left over food materials in the mouth but will absorb the Calcium of the teeth themselves. This can lead to gum disease and tooth decay in its hosts.
Its cell membrane changed to a jigsaw form with protruding spikes and intruding holes. Allowing the marinupede microplaque to hold on to others of its kind, and to the surface of the anipedic mouths, more easily.
Its orange organelle is used to draw salt and calcium from its host and the water around it, and to release genetic material into other cells. The green organelle is used to harbor genetic material from other cells and to create new cells from that. They can only reproduce four times in their life span and then decay.

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.
