The protomancerxia quadflagella is the next generation of protomancerxia binarflagella. It has evolved a system where 4 cells interlock in a cone-like shape. It as also doubled in size. Each single cell has 2 flagella but they have fused together to make a thicker flagellum. Thus even though it will grow 8 flagella, it only ends up with 4 fused flagella. On the front it has evolved a proboscis for a mouth. It uses this to pierce the cell walls of the purple and green plant cells. It also as evolved more concentrated photosynthetic cells to support this greater size. It reproduces through mitosis.

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.
