Abstract

The behaviour of the symbiont bacteria of Periplaneta americana during the different phases of embryogenesis is described. The succession of events that determine an interaction between the vitellophagic energids and the symbionts is analysed, with the successive formation of a mycetome that at first envelops the bacteria and from which they then migrate to colonize the plasmatocytes that will become bacteriocytes. We suggest that the mycetome is the primary site of symbiotic population growth.
