The Gourd Mollusc is a non-sapient, spacefaring creature that is aptly named  based on it’s similar shape to the fleshy large fruit with a hard skin found in the Sol system. The tentacles at it’s base reportedly feed off starlight and convert it into chemical energy.  The mollusc appears to have little to no desire to move unless forced to do so as a result of being struck by another object. The tentacles appear to have a bioluminescent quality to them and were noticed pulsating in bioluminescent intensity at a consistent and predictable interval.  The Purpureum variant of the Gourd Mollusc has a marine blue / green exterior (possibly a influenced by the green light of the the Viride Lagrange Cloud in which this specimen was encountered) with predominantly white  and pink highlighted tentacles.  During the observation period, no other noticeable traits were identified.

Due to their relative small size, compared to other notable stellar phenomena, these mollusc can be easily missed.  A slow ship velocity and reliance on the scanner control panel readings from your ship’s sensor suite are strongly recommended to locate these organisms.

During the survey of the system these other features were observed
