The aim of this paper is to test the following hypotheses: (1) the endosymbiotic worms occurred only in certain host species; (2) the infestation rates are host-specific; (3) endosymbionts preferred a certain type of tabulate morphology (heliolitid versus favositid); (4) the number of infested tabulate species in the coral reef and reef-related community changes over time; (5) the infestation rate of coral species changes with time.
Since endosymbiotic organisms are essential for the survival of the arthropod host, elimination of the organism would be deleterious for their survival.
Parachlamydia acanthamoebae is endosymbiotic or lytic for Aeanthamoeba polyphaga depending on the incubation temperature.
The smoking gun in this endosymbiotic interpretation is the finding of 4 membranes around the organelle--2 from the green alga and 2 from the alga's chloroplast.

Studies conducted in the laboratory of microbiologist Jody Deming (University of Washington) revealed that the gill tissues of large vesicomyid clams and bone-encrusting mussels contain substantial amounts of enzymes that are characteristic of chemoautotrophic metabolism; transmission electron microscopy indicated that these enzymes were associated with endosymbiotic bacteria.
