How to use "Paralithodes" in context?

Paralithodes is a genus of marine salps, found at depths of up to 1,200 meters. The salps are colonial animals that lack a ciliary apparatus and instead rely on a glycoprotein pump to circulate freed water through their cells. This characteristic allows the salps to live off of the hydrogen gas that is released by decaying organic materials.
