Several groups of marine fishes and squids form mutualistic bioluminescent symbioses with luminous bacteria. The dependence of the animal on its symbiont for light production, the animal's specialized anatomical adaptations for harboring bacteria and controlling light emission, and the host family bacterial species specificity characteristic of these associations suggest that bioluminescent symbioses are tightly coupled associations that might involve coevolutionary interactions.

Museum Genomics Illuminate the High Specificity of a Bioluminescent Symbiosis for a Genus of Reef Fish
TLDR
The findings indicate that the symbiosis between Siphamia fishes and P. mandapamensis Clade II has been highly conserved across host taxa and over a broad geographic range despite the facultative nature of the bacterial symbiont.
Museum genomics illuminate the high specificity of a bioluminescent symbiosis across a genus of reef fish
TLDR
The results suggest that this bioluminescent symbiosis between Siphamia fishes and P. mandapamensis Clade II has been highly conserved across a broad geographic range and through time, despite the facultative nature of the bacterial symbiont.
Phylogenetic divergence between the obligate luminous symbionts of flashlight fishes demonstrates specificity of bacteria to host genera.
TLDR
Different genera of anomalopids were found to harbour different species of bacteria, even when the hosts overlapped in geographic range, suggesting that the divergence between bacterial species is not the result of geographic isolation.
Population genomics of a bioluminescent symbiosis sheds light on symbiont transmission and specificity
TLDR
Using restriction site-associated sequencing (RAD-Seq) methods, it is demonstrated that the facultative symbiont of S. tubifer exhibits genetic structure at spatial scales of tens of kilometers in Okinawa, Japan in the absence of physical dispersal barriers and in contrast to the host fish.
Phylogenetic Diversity and Cosymbiosis in the Bioluminescent Symbioses of “Photobacterium mandapamensis”
TLDR
The results, which are the first report of bacterial cosymbiosis in fish light organs and the first demonstration that P. leiognathi is not the exclusive light organ symbiont ofLeiognathid fishes, demonstrate that the host species ranges of P. mandapamensis and P.LeIognathi are substantially distinct.
Shedding Light on Specificity: Population Genomic Structure of a Symbiosis Between a Coral Reef Fish and Luminous Bacterium
TLDR
This study highlights the important role that a host animal can play in structuring the distribution of its bacterial symbiont, particularly in highly connected marine environments, thereby promoting specificity of the symbiosis between host generations.
Genomic signatures of obligate host dependence in the luminous bacterial symbiont of a vertebrate.
TLDR
The genome of the anomalopid symbiont is reduced by 80% compared with close relatives and lacks almost all genes necessary for amino acid synthesis and for metabolism of energy sources other than glucose, supporting obligate dependence on the host for growth.
Ongoing Transposon-Mediated Genome Reduction in the Luminous Bacterial Symbionts of Deep-Sea Ceratioid Anglerfishes
TLDR
Unlike most luminous symbionts, these bacteria are undergoing an evolutionary transition toward small genomes with limited metabolic capabilities, and this work demonstrates that ecological factors other than an intracellular lifestyle can lead to dramatic gene loss and evolutionary changes and that transposon expansions may play important roles in this process.
Using Colonization Assays and Comparative Genomics To Discover Symbiosis Behaviors and Factors in Vibrio fischeri
TLDR
The genomes of Vibrio fischeri strains isolated from the tissues of squids and fishes and applied comparative genomics approaches to look for patterns between symbiont lineages and host colonization behavior showed that the dominant behavior is polyphyletic and not associated with the presence or absence of a single gene or genes.

TLDR
This study examined the variation and history of three allopatric Euprymna squid species and their respective Vibrio symbionts to highlight the importance of how interactions between symbiotic organisms can unexpectedly shape population structure in phylogeographical studies.
Bioluminescent symbionts of flashlight fishes and deep-sea anglerfishes form unique lineages related to the genus Vibrio
TLDR
Preliminary phylogenetic analysis of 16S ribosomal RNA gene sequences from light organs show that anomalopid and ceratioid symbionts are not known luminous bacteria, but are new groups related to Vibrio spp.

TLDR
The results, which are the first report of bacterial cosymbiosis in fish light organs and the first demonstration that P. leiognathi is not the exclusive light organ symbiont ofLeiognathid fishes, demonstrate that the host species ranges of P. mandapamensis and P.LeIognathi are substantially distinct.
CO‐EVOLUTION OF LUMINOUS BACTERIA AND THEIR EUKARYOTIC HOSTS
TLDR
It is anticipated that new systems will be found that represent states between those described here, and that the luminous bacteria will provide a living model for the gradual evolution from free-living microbes in intracellular organelles.
Competitive Dominance among Strains of Luminous Bacteria Provides an Unusual Form of Evidence for Parallel Evolution in Sepiolid Squid-Vibrio Symbioses
TLDR
Experimental evidence for parallel speciation patterns among several partners of the sepiolid squid-luminous bacterial symbioses is reported, indicating a pronounced dominance of native symbiont strains over nonnative strains and revealing a hierarchy of symbionts competency that reflects the phylogenetic relationships of the partners.
Evidence for cocladogenesis between diverse dictyopteran lineages and their intracellular endosymbionts.
TLDR
The results support the idea that the stem group of modern cockroaches radiated sometime between the late Jurassic and early Cretaceous-not the Carboniferous, as has been suggested on the basis of roach-like fossils from this epoch.
Phylogenetic resolution and habitat specificity of members of the Photobacterium phosphoreum species group.
TLDR
The results of this fine-scale phylogenetic analysis support the emerging view that bacterial species names should designate singular historical entities, i.e. discrete lineages diagnosed by a significant divergence of shared derived nucleotide characters.

TLDR
Photobacterium leiognathi/leiognathid fish symbiosis apparently is maintained at the bacterial species level rather than at the level of individual, genomotypically defined strain types.

It is revealed that the light organs of Sepiola affinis and Sepiola robusta contain a mixed population of Vibrio logei and V. fischeri, which is the first report of two different species of luminous bacteria co-occurring within a single light organ.
