- External morphology
Secondary circular aboral vesicle 10mm diameter. Body size 35mm x 22mm.
This arresting and unique Archignathan was discovered in great quantities by occlupanologist T. Brys during the Texas State Fair, the majority of them collected on the ground near the Texas Star Ferris Wheel. A subsequent expedition discovered their host organism- plastic bags filled with cotton candy. It appears that D. texastertrochus uses its secondary vesicle to hang securely from metal pegs. Every occlupanid collected sports the same deep red hue. The striking secondary vesicle and life habits have pushed occlupanologists to move this Cyrtotergum ally into its own genus, along with D. trexlerii.
