Kyropites were parasitic plants native to YT45. They emitted a soporific gas that put nearby fauna in a dreamlike state. The kyropites would then feed telepathically on the alpha waves produced. If close enough, the plants would extend tendrils and also consume the fauna physically. (AUDIO: The Mind's Eye)

The Kith were a highly-evolved, sponge-like, myconid race with tendrils in the place of arms. (AUDIO: Max Warp)
