A new phyllum by Hyrotrioskjan A new phyllum by Hyrotrioskjan
Ah, finally I found my watercolors and brushes!

The Meniribrachia are a (relative) new discovered phyllum of silvanian organisms. Most of them live in the endless dark of the abyssal plains but a few are also known from near the surface (but only very small species). These simple but rich in form lifeforms slide over the seabed and feed mostly on organic and anorganic particles and microbs, some of the bigger species, like the Mammoth Mentiribrachid, are also predators and consume much smaller relatives but also carrion.

General bauplan:
green: digestion tract
blue: nerve system 
red: circulatory system

Where is the respiratory system?

So how convergent are these critters to echinoderms?

They have a similar ecological niche but in most other areas they are very different

Which way is in and out on the digestive tract? The sides with multiple openings or the single opening? Why the multiple openings?

The multiple openings are the exit, the animal stores waste products and CO2 in small hard globule. It takes time to press them so they animal needs multiple openings to have no constipation.

The largest ones remind me of starfish. But I really like the designs :).

They seem to cover the ecological gambit that is seen in echinoderms (predators, carrion-feeders, detritivores, and grazing herbivores.

Now, when you say "anorganic" and "onogranic" what do you mean? I'm not familiar with those words, I'm afraid. :(

Lastly, I'm a bit puzzled: In the bauplan, your you showing that these animals have dual mouths and numerous anal pores?

Argh! These typos will kill me one day CURSE YOU! 

I meant organic and anorganic (or inorganic would be more correctly I think). Organic materials are produced by living things (wood, bones, flesh) while anorganic materials not (stone, air, water)

I really wonder why one of  Auribrachium Asymmetrica's tendrils is bigger than the others?

Thanks for reminding me, this tendril is filled with an very spicy smelling liquid which make the animal inedible for predators =)

As for the "big furry one" I suggest to follow Ebervalus suggestion plus something that honours Jim Henson (the genious that created the muppets), like "Silvanaster jimhensoni". What do you think? ;-)

wonderful thingies, look like some kind of fantasy microbes/bacteria in an alternate world where the natural processes like decay and fermentation, as well as diseases, are caused not by largely shapeless blobs-with-sometime-tendrils, but by microscopic creatures of quite complex organization.

psudoechinoderm sounds like a fitting name for the phylum, they have at least a superficial similarity in appearance and nitch in the ecosystem.  I can see some serious, and possible differences, but names like this would probably be biased on outward appearances seeing as none of them are remotely related to real earth life.

Indeed, pseudoechnioderms would be too obvious and also bit misleading =)

Obvious isn't bad, and its an alien life form from another world, of course its not actually a echnioderm.

you know, looking at their internal structure, they kinda remind me of the fractal animal life that lived on earth precambrian, most of it died out when the first bilateral life forms evolved, but not all of it, and who's to say that they didn't adapt here as well.

So basically a "fractal" form of life that develops partial bilateral forms, that makes sense.  So in a way then its the reverse of of most echinoderms that start out bilateral and radiate out as they grow (starfish for example start out as bilateral larva).

Part of what I am curious about on these is how their digestive systems work, their are a number of different models that could work, I am curious as to how you have it worked out.

So originally radial and secondarily tetralateral? Cool!
