The screencaviar now grows in distinct modular units that happen to look sort of like caviar, hence its name. They mostly grow on the ground and on dead things, especially in places with high radiation. They are also raised as a source of food by the Confusiants.

They are also darker with melanin to protect themselves from the sun, and reproduce either with spores or with new caviar balls that roll away sometimes. They still support themselves with agar like their ancestor.
