Subject: Does anyone see the floods resemblance to moss?

Does anyone think that they wanted the flood to look like moss, because they really look like moss is on them.

I don't know a lot about that but the closest thing in real life is probably Cordyceps.

Robt McLees (the designer of the Flood) says he got his inspiration for them from rotten fruits and vegetables and, for the carrier form, his cousins infected thumb.

Could it be possible that he was conducting a time lapse? I find this hard to believe.

Well, the flood do turn their hosts into a sponge-like material. Last I checked, moss is sponge-like....

Ironically enough however, moss is a member of the phylum Bryophyta, and is therefore by definition, non-parasitic. So yeah, looks like moss, but about as polar opposite as it gets in all other characteristics.

Ah, but the host would be turned to moss, not the parasite. Therefore it still fits into the Bryophyta genus.
