Protozoan Symbionts from the Anemone Bunodosoma cavernata from Galveston Island, Texas
The anemone Bunodosoma cavernata is a common inhabitant of the Texas coast and cursory observation revealed a large complement of protozoan associates. These included Saprodinium, Euplotes, Paraeuplotes, Vorticella, Cohnilembus, Anophrys, Uronema and Vahlkampfia.
Approximately forty anemones were collected from jetty rocks on Galveston Island on 3 November 1970. Note was made within one day of protozoans found on the external surfaces, in the coelenteron and in surrounding sea water. The anemones were kept until 7 December 1970 under varying conditions and bi-weekly note was made of the associated protozoan fauna.
