The pagodapalm split from the shallowpalm. Due to the invasion of the stickyballs, much of its dormant genes have returned to protect it. Its trunks has returned to a bell-like shape. This is to absorb more energy to produce its toxic poison, except this time it is used to dissolve the stickyballs that land on it. The leaves on the top have also regained their teflon-like features as well, just in case they get stickyballs on them. Its range is on the flatlands among the grasses. They grow sparsely, because they grow slower than the grasses. It is an important part of the ecosystem, because creatures will rub against it to dissolve off stickyballs that have built up on their skin. This rubbing has encouraged larger and larger bell-shaped trunks, because it knocks off pollen which lands on them, and the genes are passed onto the next tree the creatures rub against.

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.
