Brokndrsemes is in charge of creating the 'gas' planets surrounding Genesis.
I have come up of a name for our first star system, C'satherin. Our first (And only) planet within the system is named simply Genesis.
From now on, if you create an element it must have a two letter abbreviation to classify it. Do not repeat abbreviations, if I find one repeated it shall be changed. The Latin system will work.

    Ifurbis

    Domain: Eukaryota
    Kingdom: Chromalveolate
    Phylum: Heterokontophyta
    Class: Xanthophyceae
    Order: Botrydiales
    Family: Botrydiaceae
    Genus: Ifurbis
    Species: Ifurbis carbonis

    Color: yellow-green, green, dark green, yellow, orange-green, yellow-red

    Description:
    Ifurbis carbonis(Ith-er-bes Kar-bon-is) is a algae that means to live in volcanoes. They grab nutrients to grow from a mineral called Fulere, a extrusive igneous rock that is commonly found on a tip of a volcano. Ifurbis cannot live in oxygen, their resource of life is carbon. They are very microscopic small and and each day, about 20,000 Ifurbis grows on Fulere. Each Ifurbis have a life span of only 10 days.

    Why grow on Fulere?

    Fulere is rich of carbon, the main source of Ifurbis carbonis. Ifurbis roots are very small they can seep in through the rocks, and also strong, they can somewhat break the rocks, imagine the rock at a hardness scale of around 7! The largest known Ifurbis carbonis is 2.4873 cm tall.

    Very good creation. Do you mind if I use this format as the official template?

    Interesting organism. Any hints as to it's place in the food chain? I doubt that even Lava Dwelling Algae is safe from Herbivores and Omnivores, no matter how small, so, with my interest in animals, what species or phylum feeds on this?

    Probably different types of bacteria, if they could survive in the intense heat, of course.

    I'd be fascinated to see what type of bacteria are able to survive and feed on this, probably because I'd really like it if ever evolves to land dwelling creatures within a couple of billion years.
