This species which split from Binucleusdetritivorus has developed 5 pairs of cilia and a pair of flagella which allow it to move in search of food. It has also developed enzymes which extract energy from its food by converting glucose to alcohol, with carbon dioxide as a waste product. In the absence of immediately available food, it also extracts energy from oxygen in a process which converts the oxygen to carbon dioxide as well. It is otherwise pretty similar to its ancestor; it has 2 nuclei, and it primarily gathers in groups on the seafloor where it scavenges for various dead organisms to digest.
