A hoax? A mutation? A mistaken image aspect ratio? When reports of this bizarre Toxodentid surfaced, members of HORG were skeptical. Discovered in a surplus box at a recycling facility, It quickly became something of a legend, captivating the imagination of many occlupanologists who dubbed it the “Widest Boi”. Its stalwart discoverer L. Helm (FORC) persevered and sent in their specimen for taxonomic review. Forced to confront the physical undeniability and distorted morphology of Latifilius horizontalis, even the most jaded abiotic systematist could not help but stare at it in slack-mandibled wonder. Nothing is known about its host, but the presence of glue and paper on its obverse side indicates the presence of an equally extra-wide amiculum. To date only a single specimen is known to exist.
