and convergent objects

While occlupanids are diverse and fecund enough to be encountered nearly world-wide, they are by no means the only microsyntheric objects to have settled on this particular ecological niche. Some have been found in similar habitats and locales, and in some cases have supplanted occlupanids entirely in the bread aisles of grocery stores.

From time to time many curious specimens have been donated to HORG, in order that our team of researchers could shed some light on their taxonomic status. While some are emphatically not occlupanids, many others in our collection exist in a liminal state of uncertainty, their admission into the halls of HORG hotly debated as new evidence is brought to light.

What follows is a collection of convergently-evolved microsyntherids and other objects the Synthetic Taxonomist might encounter in their studies across this globe.
