Termite symbionts: “unless one has really seen this overwhelming mass of squirming, wriggling, undulating protozoa which greet the eye when a termite’s intestinal content is viewed under the microscope, one cannot form any conception whatever of the immense difficulty envolved in attempting to study in detail any of them except the very large and dominant genus Trichonympha.” Cleveland, 1925.
