Split off from adoralgae, adorbalgae is very spherical, like its name implies. It resides in northern polar regions, as well as temperate northern parts of Vailnoff where it has no competition with its ancestor. It survives in polar waters by producing antifreeze proteins, the production triggered by low temperatures so that those in temperate regions and in warmer months don’t waste energy on it. It also sports cilia, which help it to move towards better light. Its northernmost range is pushed south during the winter, but it spreads back further north in the summer; it manages this by reproducing very quickly. It is otherwise identical to its ancestor; it converts carbon dioxide into oxygen during photosynthesis, and it has 2 nuclei.
