EVERYPlant Hollow-Stemmed Sphenophyllum 02 --16 Models-- 3D model
Name: Hollow-Stemmed Sphenophyllum
Scientific: Sphenophyllum miravallis
This Variation: 2 of 12
Habitat: Small extinct plant that was part of the Carboniferous forest understory. It appeared in the Devonian period and went extinct in the Permian; it is possible some species survived until the Triassic. It appears to have occupied the swampy shorelines in between larger plants, and probably had it's roots in water.
Range: Fossils have been found virtually the world over suggesting the plant had a global range.
Notes: Related to modern day clubmosses and horsetails, but with no modern day representatives. It had a small herbaceous body with jointed stems, cuneate leaves in whorls of three or multiples of three, and terminal cones or sporophylls. Anatomic aspects of the plant suggest both an aquatic and a terrestrial habitat.

- Unhealthy -- 232,756 polygons -- 72.56cm tall. In a relatively poor state with much of its foliage missing or diseased.
- Dying -- 203,020 polygons -- 65.66cm tall. Plant is just hanging onto life and showing only unhealthy and diseased foliage.
- Dead -- 158,275 polygons -- 58.48cm tall. Showing only dead foliage. Stems may be broken and missing.
- Ancient -- 636,940 polygons -- 90.68cm tall. Plant is at it's full growth height.
- Young Mature -- 257,907 polygons -- 53.83cm tall. Plant is fully mature, but not fully grown.
- Young -- 109,400 polygons -- 30.51cm tall. Young plant still growing.
- Immature -- 44,659 polygons -- 12.04cm tall. Plant has not yet reached it's mature aspect. Strobili are generally missing, or in an early development stage.
- Seedling -- 40,512 polygons -- 7cm tall. Very young plant just forming.
- Single Plant -- 31,208 polygons -- 75.92cm tall. Only one plant has been generated.
- Less Plants -- 241,118 polygons -- 75.92cm tall. There are fewer plants in this cluster.
- More Plants -- 974,996 polygons -- 79.22cm tall. There is a larger number of plants in this cluster.
- Smaller Cluster -- 531,910 polygons --75.92cm tall. The cluster is smaller and the plants more densely packed together.
- Larger Cluster -- 531,910 polygons -- 75.92cm tall. The cluster is larger and the plants are further spread out.
- Simplified -- 384,089 polygons -- 75.93cm tall. Same as the Standard model but finer details have been omitted. Lower poly count. Intended for mid or distant renders.
Re-meshing available upon request, eg adaptive mesh for lower poly count (this is the default setting and is as supplied), uniform mesh for easier editing, strict quads, tris, mixed, poly increase or decrease, etc. No charge to existing customers of the product.
Many other modifications to models also available upon request. No charge to existing customers of the product.
The textures included in this pack are mainly 4k (4096x4096) to cater for detailed renders, this is the default map size and is included in each of the file format download files, no need for seperate downloads. However these may be slow to load or render on some system and may not be necessary in all situations. To allow for this, medium 2k, small 1k, and tiny <1k textures are also available and may be downloaded alongside the various model formats. Different texture sizes can simply be swapped in or out by copying the Maps sub-folder; no need to manipulate the materials in your editor. Please use whichever best suits your system and needs.
EVERYPlant has a mission ... which is to model every plant species in the world (plus some extinct, fantasy and sci-fi variations as well)! Okay, maybe not every plant, but at least the identifiably different species which have at least a common name! Want to keep track on how that's going? You can find the details at our facebook page.
