Ancestor:Descendants:

Moss-eating sea finworm split from the herbivorous sea finworm. It has changed it diet to the local flora which is sea moss. Even though the moss grows on the trunk of the deep palm it will not eat the palm. While its body has changed little it's coloring has. It is now blue and green to blend in with the green moss and the blue tree trunk. It lays its eggs near the top of the deep palm. Unlike beakworms it must come up to the surface for air so the hatchings will have a better chance to reach the surface when laid there.
