Endosymbiotic bacteria are commonly found in terrestrial arthropods and their effects have been studied extensively.

A fragment of the cytochrome oxidase c subunit I “barcoding” region belonging to unidentified Rickettsiales, presumably belonging to the genus Rickettsia, was sequenced from six individuals of Amaurobioides africana Hewitt, 1917.
