Description[]

Yhalocroni are rather small creatures compared to other creatures in Gorb Olohya, with a height ranging between 20 and 60 centimeters, a lenght ranging between 1 and 1.5 meters (tail included), and a weight of between 20 and 30 centimeters.

Yhalocroni have stocky bodies with a rear end composed of multiple slightly tentacle-like prolongations, thus vaguely resembling the body of a vampire squid. Emerging from between the tentacles, a rather long tail sprouts. Yhalocroni have four short legs, with the front ones ending in one digited claw-like feet and the back ones ending in four-digited feet, including three forwards-facing clawed toes and a talon on each foot. They have six more tentacle-like prolongations close to the front limbs: a large one coming from above each shoulder, and two tiny ones on each upper arm. Right above the larger tentacles, on the back of the body, the creature's eyes can be seen, which are small and round, each of them located on top of a thin eyestalk. At the front of their bodies, in what could be considered their face, they have a broad proboscis mouth that points downwards and two bioluminiscent gill-like structures on each side. They have green, slimy skin, while their eyes and "gills" are bright yellow.

Sexual dimorphism is present in Yhalocroni, and it's rather noticeable. Males have shorter back tentacles and posess four spike-like structures at the end of their tails, serving as reproductive organs, while females have slightly longer tentacles and lack aforementioned structures. After hatching from their eggs, Yhalocroni undergo a larva/tadpole stage, which is quite different from their adult form: their tails have a paddle-shaped end that helps them swim, their back tentacles are shorter, their six front tentacles are longer, they have fewer eyes and no visible legs, and their proboscides are usually facing forward. These larvae are much smaller than the adults, usually measuring between 2 and 3 centimeters in length.

Taxonomy[]

Yhalocroni have been taxonomically classified as molluscosaurs belonging to the Cuttlesauridae family. This classification might be wrong, though. No other members in the family closely resemble them, so they don't have close relatives morphology-wise.

Their binominal name is Allolohyia sporocauda, with the genus name meaning strange Olohyan, and the eptithet meaning spore tail in Latin.
