The symbioses between cellulose-degrading flagellates and bacteria are one of the most fascinating phenomena in the complex micro-ecosystem found in the hindgut of lower termites. However, little is known about the identity of the symbionts. One example is the epibiotic bacteria colonizing the surface of hypermastigote protists of the genus Staurojoenina. By using scanning electron microscopy, it was shown that the whole surface of Staurojoenina sp. from the termite Neotermes cubanus is densely… Expand
