The protomancerxia thermaparasitica split off from protomancerxia parasitica by going deep down to the bottom of the pool near the dark, hot geothermal vents. It now feeds off of the large columns of protohydroia octherma. To adapt to this environment its cell membrane has thickened to be protected by the heat and toxic chemicals as well as losing its photosynthetic parts because it doesn't need them anymore. Protomancerxia parasitica still exist up near the surface though.
