The palmshrub worm has split from its ancestor. With the evolution of the leafy palmshrub, the pyroworm now had a new food source in the forest. Much like its ancestor, it feeds on seeds. The chemoreceptors of the pyroworm are still used by its descendant, as the palmshrub worm locates food using them. Once it has found food it will use its two pincers to cut open the “trunks” of the palmshrub or marshrub and then it eats the seeds inside. It can watch for danger while it does this with its eyes on its back. The wings work in opposite to each other, with one pair going down when the other rises. Its wings are always working whilst the worm is in the air.
The worms will spend their whole lives around either the leafy palmshrub or marshrub. Its wings have evolved to look just like the leaves of the leafy palmshrub. Those worms in the marsh have wings that look like the marshrub.
