After penetration into the host, the symbiotic bacteria are released into the haemocoele of the latter from the gut of the infective juveniles.
Three days after inoculation, the penetrant structures had started to invade the epidermis, haemocoele and other tissues.
The fungus then penetrated the endocuticle and developed within the haemocoele (stage 4).
Observations in this study suggest that, once the fungus has penetrated the endocuticle, it is able to develop rapidly within the haemocoele, soon leading to the death of the host.
