    Here are the most docile, gentle creatures of all of Hollow Earth. They grow and move peacefully, in tune with their environment.

    At a microscopic scale, however, their cells are constantly seeking and eating the Spemluminis colony. Without the docile Marasmia Crusta, and their gentle presence, that colony of microbial horrors might engulf everything...

    The big difference is that Slugera is a gastropod, with a fungus growing on it.

    Here, by comparison, we have a fungus that grows into a slow-moving kaiju.

    The distinction comes in how they behave, and what critical modifier they have to that base motivation.

    Marasmia is all about growth - gaining body mass, absorbing nutrient, and generally getting bigger and bigger.
    Slugera is a scavenger - blanketing areas with toxic spores, and generally fighting dirty.

    Ah... so the fact that Marasmia resembles a giant snail is just convergent evolution? Interesting...
    I wonder how well it synergies with Venomberry?
