I have a question. I was filling in a food web for rhodix vents, when i came across the dark swarmer. It lists as its diet Plankton and organic matter. Could someone clear this up for me?
This is probably a mistake overlooked for lack of rules at the time.
we can look and see what kinds of organisms it could have filter fed upon at that time, and list it instead of what's there...Edit:
did some searching
the only micros that were there when it evolved were the Placoball
, and they are still extant, so in its diet, it should be written:
Detritivore (organic matter), Filter Feeder (Placoball), Photosynthesis
