|Gender||Asymmetric (pictured), Rational|
Ilbiveaniumum Nesoi is a species of diplo fauna.
Summary[edit | edit source]
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Both genders are characterized by a white underbelly, and light green skin/scales on the dorsal area, limbs, posterior side of the neck, and most of the head. Both genders also share unusual feet: the front two feet feature 3 digits/"toes", while the rear feet resemble cloven hooves, like a pig in Earth biology. They also share the same type of eyes, black with red irises. Shared eye appearances between genders is a somewhat uncommon phenomenon in diplo species.
Both genders belong to the "arched back" subset of the Rangifae genus, which, as the name suggests, means their spine (or we would expect to be their spine) curves upward. In contrast, in "flat back" diplos, the back remains relatively level.
The Rational gender, larger of the two, is a fairly plain diplo. It features no particular ornamentation, such as large head crests, back plating, or chest plating. Its lone distinguishing feature is two small lumps on top of its head.
The Asymmetric gender has a more striking appearance. It features a large crest on top of its head, popularized by Rigatori Niplatea, also known as the Drogradur Diplos. This crest is sometimes referred to as a "sword," bone formation, fungal formation, or simply as "the diplo's hat." The upper, posterior portion of its neck is covered in green, horizontally-oriented, platform-like formations, while the lower, anterior portion of its neck features yellow, vertically-oriented, disk-like fins or protrusions. It also features subtle dorsal plating (less prominent than that often seen in Theroma species or other diplos).
