Fumerola genus

Description

Extremophile organisms located in regions with active fumaroles. Their metabolism is driven exclusively through chemosynthetic and thermosynthetic mechanisms based on nearby volcanic activity. Proximity to volcanic heat allows them to survive in environments where the ambient temperature is naturally too cold for them. They frequently incorporate minerals from the fumaroles’ ejecta, meaning they can appear inorganic at first glance and may sport exotic colours.

Minimum distance between two genetic samples: 100 m

Conditions of occurrence

  • Planets with thin atmosphere
  • Develop on fumaroles (geological POI)
  • Maximum gravity: 0.27

Fumerola aquatis

CMDR Banteay Srei, Fumerola aquatis, Gludgoe FQ-F b53-1, 6 b

Description

A species of fumerola that can be found near sites of water-based volcanic activity. They appear as small dark clusters with ridged folds that trap heat within.

Fumerola carbosis

CMDR Mist0, Fumerola carbosis, Clookau RG-Y d11, A 3 b

Description

A fumerola species found near sites of carbon—based volcanism, appearing as a thin upright tube. An inner organism protrudes from an opening at its peak to increase heat absorption.

Fumerola extremus

CMDR Kazahnn Drahnn, Fumerola extremus, Prua Phoe OL-D c17, AB 3 a

Description

An exception among its kin. this fumerola species seems to have an arbitrary preference of specific volcanism types which have yet to be explicitly linked in any way. They appear as long vertical stalks with smaller fronds that can stretch out.

Vista Genomics Value: 711 500 Cr

Conditions of occurrence

  • Planets with thin atmosphere
  • Develop on fumaroles (geological POI)
  • Silicate, Iron or Rocky based volcanism, only on Rocky or High Metal Content planets
  • Maximum gravity: 0.27

Fumerola nitris

CMDR Slyder011, Fumerola nitris, SKAUDAI JT-R B50-4, 1 D

Description

This species of fumerola prefers nitrogen-based volcanism. They produce an ovoid organism with dotted markings, which sits on top of a thin stalk.

Vista Genomics Value: 389 400 Cr

Conditions of occurrence

  • Planets with thin atmosphere
  • Develop on fumaroles (geological POI)
  • Nitrogen or Ammonia based volcanism, only on Icy or Rocky Ice planets
