That thing that makes a critter a Lazarus taxon is our limited knowledge
of its stratigraphic and distributional record, and not properties of the
organism per se. (Although obviously the new life habit is what allowed it
to "escape" from our recovery of the record for an interval).
Hope this helps,
immensely; thank you.
