Abstract

Summary: The first case of a non-luminescent symbiont of a sp. is reported. The bacterium, isolated from a previously unknown species of , was identified as a biovar of Xenorhabdus luminescens. Ultrastructural study of the bacterium revealed membranous and crystalline inclusions comparable with those of luminescent strains of
