Das Raster-Elektronenmikroskop wurde benutzt für die Analyse der Feinstrukturen des Pereiopoden Dactylus der indowestpazifischen Pontoniinae, Anchistus miersi (De Man), die kommensalisch in der Mantelhöhle der Muschel Tridacna lebt. Der frontale Rand des Dactylus ist bedeckt durch kleine gebogene und Kompakt-eingepflanzte Dornen, deren Spitzen vorne scharf und hinten stumpf sind. Vermutlich dient diese Struktur des Dactylus der Bewegung und dem Festhalten im Wirtstier. In diesem Sinne kann die Feinstruktur als morphologische Anpassung an das kommensalische Leben interpretiert werden.
