"the pauperate"

The Pauperate might be a caucus that neighbours on Eggcornistan. This evening I was deep into imagining the teaming microvertebrate hordes in the Ozarks when I came across this:

Researcher talks about salamander biomass
And, low and behold, our numbers were 2-4 times greater than Burton and Likens’ estimates. ... So that suggests to me that Burton and Likens’ estimates are either poor and low or New Hampshire is just the pauperite of salamanders.

The pauperite. Like the syndicate of paupery. Or its bedrock. There are other hits where depauperate has been de-capitated.

fossil mall
This one is a member of the order Priapulomorpha, a very pauperate order having but 2 genera.

It has so few genera that it’s not even depauperate. It’s completely pauperate.
