Insects are generally associated with gut bacterial communities that benefit the hosts with respect to diet digestion, limiting resource supplementation, pathogen defense, and ecological niche expansion. Heteroptera (true bugs) represent one of the largest and most diverse insect lineages and comprise species consuming different diets and inhabitin...


... Considering that diet was previously reported as an important factor in shaping the gut microbiome [49], the microbial communities of the sediment samples and the fish food used to feed the laboratory cultures were analyzed in parallel with the gut samples. Comparing microbial community structure at the phylum and genus levels, CL samples and fish food did not share taxa with more than 1% of relative abundance, indicating that fish food did not affect the structure of the gut microbiome of laboratory-reared C. riparius larvae. ...
