The sagavermes microplaque has replaced its ancestor microplaque. It has spread across the globe infecting only the Sagaverme Phylum. It lives much like its ancestor by growing into large colonies covering the surface of the teeth and gums in a clear "biofilm". It eats not only the left over food materials in the mouth but will absorb the chitin of the teeth themselves. Thus building their own cell walls with chitin. This can lead to gum disease and tooth decay in its host.
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.
