In the heterotrophic theory for the origin of life, we imagine a primordial soup that is rich in organic compounds and the first organisms emerge eating those compounds. Since these organic compounds are external to this early organism, this early organism is a heterotroph. But it is not like any current heterotroph since it doesn't eat other organisms or their byproducts. Is there a special name for this 'type-0' heterotroph?
At some point, some organisms emerge that eat other organisms (i.e. eat those 'type-0' heterotrophs that are already around). These new organisms are more like the standard heterotrophs of today. Is there a special name for this 'type-1' heterotroph?
I am looking for the terminology that distinguishes the heterotroph that eats only organic compounds that are non-organisms in the primordial soup ('type-0') versus the heterotroph that eats other organisms ('type-1').
Normally, I could call the 'type-0' a primary heterotroph and the 'type-1' a secondary heterotroph. But we usually think of primary heterotrophs as things that eat autotrophs and at the start of the heterotropic theory, there are no autotrophs to eat. The primordial soup of the environment itself is the 'producer'.
If there is no standard name, would it be strange to call the 'type-0' heterotrophs as 'nullary heterotrophs' and the organisms that eat other organisms as 'non-nullary heterotrophs'?
