The Stingerfans are half flora, half fauna life forms native to planet Aurelia. They look like plants, but their roots have muscles and act like slow moving tentacles. The Stingerfans also have five hearts. But they do utilize photosynthesis and multiply by growing young stingerfans from the adults' tentacles.
In few words, stingerfans are photosynthetic autotrophic fauna native to Aurelia that reproduce by budding.
