|Abstract:||Clevelandia ios is a small estuarine teleost that inhabits the
burrows of the Thalassinid crustacean Callianassa californiensis. Field observations
and laboratory experiments were undertaken to determine the relationship
of Clevelandia ios and Callianassa californiensis, whether it be commensalism,
mutualism, or parasitism. Clevelandia ios and Callianassa californiensis
were found to co-occur in burrows less frequently than they would
be expected to by chance, under both field and laboratory conditions. In
addition, the arrow gobies were found to inhabit the ghost shrimp burrows
only during the spring and summer months.
