The posion mavrophyte split from its ancestor the mavrophyte. Like its ancestor it grows on the banks of Russ River and Russ Bog. There the long stem stays in the water while the iny lob leaves sit on the bank absorbing light. They are hollow and have a primitive vascular system. To reproduce, the filamentous hairs on the drinking roots release cylindrical spores. Once the spores find a suitable place to grow, it will slowly grow out of the water.
What sets it apart from its ancestor is its bright new yellow stripes this warns herbivores that its poisonous . It produces a mild toxin that cause the victim to vomit and gives them a bitter taste. This adaptation allowed it to compete among the other, more advanced, black flora which also live in the region. The bright yellow stripes usually keep any herbivores away, however if one tried they will remember the experience and never eat it again.
