Are the Phanatons from Isle of D of a yazirian ecological origin?

Yazirian ecology?

Phanatons from Isle of Dread. 

friendly curious tool users with language. 

I might not be a dralasite, vrusk or yazirian but I do play one in Star Frontiers!

They ought to be.
Perhaps a missing link like the Neanderthal?
Most yazirians share 3-6% DNA with the Phanatons. Call that a fact of science but the Fo1 denies this is true and has declared it heresy to Fo1 belief.

Side Note: I love these illustrations for several reasons. 

1. the action is dynamic and awesome. How about that shield pinned against the ground by the adventurer's own body making it useless? 

2. the descriptions in the module make it clear these guys are friendly and curious and welcome the idea of making powerful friends with the PCs and or trading with them so the fact that the art portrays PCs getting swarmed the the 59 phanatons tells me these PCs must be murder hobos and who doesn't like hearing about murder hobos getting taken down?

Drallow Sooen, a dralasite linguist working on the Yazirian/Pan Gal dictionary coined the name Yazanderthal

Pictured above is the Pygmy Yazanderthal.

Someone working on Isle of Dread really liked the Yazirian like Phanatons- 3 different bits of art for them and a village map given the full page treatment?
