An undescribed archaeogastropod limpet is prominent in the fauna of hydrothermal vents in the Juan de Fuca Ridge of the northeastern Pacific. Dense colonies of filamentous bacteria occur on the epithelial surface of the limpet gill. Optical and electron microscopy show that the bacteria are frequently endocytosed by the epithelial cells and broken down in lysosome-like organelles. Nutritional, pathological, and symbiotic interpretations of the limpet-bacteria association and the endocytotic… 
Colonization of Sulfurovum sp. on the gill surfaces of Alvinocaris longirostris, a deep‐sea hydrothermal vent shrimp
TLDR
Results suggest that bacterial association with gills also occurs in bresiliid shrimps.
Gill Symbionts in Thyasirids and Other Bivalve Molluscs
  • E. Southward
  • Environmental Science, Biology
    Journal of the Marine Biological Association of the United Kingdom
  • 1986
TLDR
The fine structure of the gill epithelia and the symbiotic Gram-negative bacteria is described, and four species of Thyasiridae and Diplodonta rotundata, a member of the closely related family Ungulinidae, were found to lack gill symbionts.
Chemoautotrophic Symbiosis in a Hydrothermal Vent Gastropod
TLDR
The gills of this snail contain elemental sulfur and high activities of enzymes catalyzing sulfide metabolism and autotrophic CO2 fixation indicating that the bacteria function as sulfur oxidizing Chemoautotrophic endosymbionts—a symbiosis described previously only in vestimentiferan and pogonophoran tubeworms, oligocheate worms, and bivalve molluscs.
An Ascomycete Commensal on the Gills of Bathynerita naticoidea, the Dominant Gastropod at Gulf of Mexico Hydrocarbon Seeps
  • J. Zande
  • Environmental Science, Biology
  • 1999
TLDR
The discovery of a fungal commensal on the gills of B. naticoidea, the dominant gastropod at petroleum seep communities located along the Gulf of Mexico upper continental slope, is reported, the first report of aFungal association within gastropods endemic to hydrocarbon seep or hydrothermal vent.
Association of filamentous epibacteria with Tubificoides benedii (Oligochaeta: Annelida)
A previously undescribed colonization of the marine oligochaete Tubificoides benedii (d'Udekum, 1855) from a sulfide-rich habitat by filamentous epibacteria was observed in 1984 and 1985. Electron
A NEW FINDING OF INTRACELLULAR BACTERIAL SYMBIONTS IN THE NERILLIDAE (ANNELIDA: POLYCHAETA)
TLDR
The discovery of bacteria in adults, juveniles, and embryos and the presence of highly specialized bacteriocytes observed in both species give the reason to suggest that the symbiosis is obligate.
Feeding specialization of bresiliid shrimps in the TAG site hydrothermal community '
It is argued that the Atlantic bresiliid shrimps Rimicaris exoculata and Chorocaris chacei from a hydrothermal community on the Mid-Atlantic h d g e feed on exosymbiotic bacteiia that form a dense
Phylogenetic Characterization of Episymbiotic Bacteria Hosted by a Hydrothermal Vent Limpet (Lepetodrilidae, Vetigastropoda)
TLDR
The first filamentous γ-proteobacterial gill symbiont hosted by a mollusc is reported, suggesting a highly specific and widespread symbiosis in this deep-sea hydrothermal vent limpet.
Epsilonproteobacteria as gill epibionts of the hydrothermal vent gastropod Cyathermia naticoides (North East-Pacific Rise)
TLDR
An unusual symbiosis is described, where autotrophic filamentous Epsilonproteobacteria are located extracellularly, at the base of host gill filaments, suggesting bacteria may contribute to its nutrition through intracellular digestion by gill cells.
A new bathymodioline mussel symbiosis at the Juan de Fuca hydrothermal vents
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of the host cytochrome oxidase I gene show this mussel shares evolutionary alliances with hydrothermal vent and cold seep mussels from the genus Bathymodiolus, and is distinct from other known species of deep-sea bathymodiolines, suggesting this mussels is a newly discovered species.

INTRACELLULAR DIGESTION OF SYMBIONTIC ZOOXANTHELLAE BY HOST AMOEBOCYTES IN GIANT CLAMS (BIVALVIA: TRIDACNIDAE), WITH A NOTE ON THE NUTRITIONAL ROLE OF THE HYPERTROPHIED SIPHONAL EPIDERMIS
TLDR
The question of utilization of zooxanthellae as a holozoic food source by their tridacnid clam hosts was explored utilizing techniques of electron microscopy and electron microscopical histochemistry, and it is suggested a priori that this endocytosed material contributes to the nutrition of the clam.
EVOLUTION AND ADAPTATION IN THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM OF THE METAZOA
TLDR
Extracellular digestion has completely replaced the more primitive form of digestion in certain rhabdocoel Turbellaria, Polyzoa, Annelida, Myriapoda, Crustacea, Insecta, Cephalopoda and Chordata.
Ingestion of particulate matter by the outer surface cells of the mollusc mantle
TLDR
The method of ingestion observed in the surface epithelia and the amoebocytes is similar to the ingestion of protein and other particulate material reported for a variety of vertebrate tissues.
Correlation of lysosomal activity and ingestion by the mantle epithelium.
TLDR
Ingestion of particulate matter by the outer mantle fold of the calico clam, Macrocallista maculata, was studied and it was shown that the colloidal gold was localized in organelles which, on the basis of fine-structure morphology and histochemical tests, the authors ascertain to be lysosomes.
