Primary symbiont of the ancient scale insect family Coelostomidiidae exhibits strict cophylogenetic patterns


Bacterial symbionts play a critical role in the physiology, ecology and evolution of a diverse range of insects. Such symbionts with unknown roles in the ecology and evolution of their hosts have been reported from archaeococcoid scale insects of family Coelostomidiidae. We examine in detail the bacterial community associated with the remaining species of… (More)
