Phylum Pilocorporea by Sanrou Phylum Pilocorporea by Sanrou


The Phylum Pilocorporea (former Capillosoma) is characterized primarily by the way its organic tissues are organized: cell-like filaments that resemble hair and can assume the most different forms and properties.

A way of putting in perspective, for example, is to imagine that most of the organs, like bones, skin, viscera, nervous system, etc., are composed by different arrangements of the same kind of tissue, like muscular fiber. A super adaptable muscular fiber.

While these “hair-like” tissues are responsible for allowing a high range of anatomical diversification within the phylum, they are extremely dependent on water and humidity, thus the Pilocorporea are almost exclusive of the wet regions of the planet (Equator), and are practically absent on the Polar regions. 

The Pilocorporea are also extremely well adapted to withstand high amounts of radiation due to the conditions of living on areas with the most direct solar exposure on the planet.

Ahhh, something I have to do for Silvanus too at some point... but there are still so many missing clades :( 

Awesome stuff! Keep it up!

Amazing creatures, and wonderful job on the cladogram!!:D (Big Grin) 

Just a quick question! What method do you use to name your creatures? I'm curious because I'm working on a project of mine and I have problems with the use of Latin...And as I can see, your creatures have decent scientific names.

Also...I love all your illustrations and creatures! Especially the  Megaposticranium magnus and Blandopoda - II pieces! They are all amazing and fascinating!La la la la 

Keep up with the great work! (And sorry for the long comment!!)Sweating a little...

returning here for another look at a great family tree - a fine example of "wonderous forms diverse and wonderous" or however Darwin put it.

kudos!

I really must congratulate you for reaching a great degree of diversity and complexity in these extraterrestrials, by far one of the best Exobiological projects :)
Also an interesting concept about different variations of the same tissue.

Anu is right up there with Snaiad and Illion as the best xenobiology projects.

I have a question. Will you illustrate the microscopic lifeforms of Anu :) ? I know they are not very large and complex as those you already have created, but I find microscopic life rad.

I never put much thought on it, but now that you mentioned, perhaps. I need to study more about microbial life before, though :D

This is some incredible stuff!  Especially fascinating is how all of their tissues are made up of hair-like strands that assume different properties.  I’m curious to see how their bones are structured.

Thank you! Most of them don't have bones per se, but you can imagine internal 'ropes' as structural organs    :)
