From: A unique midgut-associated bacterial community hosted by the cave beetle Cansiliella servadeii(Coleoptera: Leptodirini) reveals parallel phylogenetic divergences from universal gut-specific ancestors

Figure 6

Phylotype and host partitioning in GenBank subjects with similarity to Cansiliella-associated bacteria. a) Abundance of 16S rDNA phylotypes found from the midgut using a culture-independent approach and respective GenBank homology percentage classes. b) Proportions of insects orders or other environments hosting bacterial subjects resulting in different degrees of sequence homology (x axis) with clones of the non-culturable microbial community from the midgut. The smaller diagram in the upper right corner shows the same data as line graphs and by pooling the insect orders together to put in evidence the separation from the cases found in non-insect environments. c) Proportions of insects orders or other environments hosting bacterial subjects resulting in different degrees of sequence homology (x axis) with culturable microbial community isolates from the midgut and external tegument. The definition ‘other’ includes all non-insect guts, faeces, and other habitats as reported in Table 2.
