Should the Tardigrades that landed on The Moon be considered aliens, or Earthlings? (Or Moon-lings?!??)

What should the technical name for where they live be?

So recently an Israeli spacecraft crash-landed on The Moon. This spacecraft was carrying tardigrades (more commonly referred to as "water bears") which are tiny creatures that can survive in extremely harsh climates, including, but not limited to:
  • Deep underseas
  • In/on other organisms
  • On top of mountains
  • without water or food for almost 100 years
  • Gamma Ray exposure for extended periods of time, and even
  • the vacuum of space
So, The Moon would be perfect for them. Since they are spread all over the surface, and they at least stand a chance against the harsh climates on The Moon, should they be called Earthlings (they were born here, after all), aliens (They're in space. Duh!), or Moon-lings?!? [(I'm still working on the name) but they technically do live there]?
